As first you need to download the VirtualBox 5.0.17 Guest Additions installer image from here.

I fixed it! I held down f12 as I was rebooting my computer and selected ubuntu from the menu. Then, once I was in my old ubuntu partition, I ran the boot repair that reinstalled and updated grub. I'm not sure if this was a necessary step, since after that when I rebooted it again went straight to windows. From there though, I opened an admin command ...

Just a guess.... In ubuntu 15.10, the upstart "service" manager has been replaced by the systemd solution. Depending on how you have performed your installation, this might explain this situation I would try to remove/re-install xrdp package (from Ubuntu repository) Check that alternate desktop has been installed properly (mate-desktop or xfce or the ...

I'm pretty sure that the problem is your burned USB for Windows. Maybe try to burn a new one by using the official application provide by Microsoft named Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. And just a trick: you could try your usb key to see if it's bootable by testing it on a Virtualbox's VM. To do that when you start a VM on the first seconds you see the text ...

It is possible and I think you won't lose your data on D: and E:, but your Win7 installiation may become corrupted, so you should back up your files. You have to partition your C: drive and because of that you can lose your data. When you are using the Ubuntu Installation wizard you will be asked what to do (install over win7 or besides or something else), ...

So I went ahead and clicked on the Windows 7 partition under Disk management in Win7 environment and set it as Active. I was then able to perform the SP1 update on it. The GRUB2 bootloader was not affected at all and now I'm on Linux Ubuntu with no problem. I think the only thing to denote is that the Active partition now is Win7 instead of Linux. However, ...

I don't see any custom shares specified in your configuration file. But if you are new to the OS, I would suggest for you to install a graphical samba shares manager, this way, you can create your shares via GUI, and later inspect your smb.conf file to understand them.

Avira also offers a rescue cd, which can be downloaded here: http://www.avira.com/en/download/product/avira-rescue-system. It is a standalone live CD. Just boot it, update the signature files, and run it. You can also install clamAV and scan your windows partitions with it if you can mount them under Ubuntu.
