comment Software center shows that Google Docs has been installed
Your machine almost certainly wasn't hacked. Out of the box, there's no way a user across the net can do anything on your machine. Even if your machine was hacked, even though it is incredibly unlikely, installing google docs is comically bad hacking.

comment How can I prevent VirtualBox from changing the permissions on the .vbox File?
Since you only have one host, you would only be running one instance of the cloned guest at any time. I am not a lawyer, but that certainly seems in keeping with the spirit of a single windows licence.

Odd, it seems like this either happens or doesn't depending on who you ask serverfault.com/questions/311857/… alas, there isn't an answer there.

comment Is it possible to install Ubuntu and Lubuntu so that their basic programs are separate but they share programs installed after the main installation?
I can think of some ways to hack an installation like you desire, but I think you'd be buying yourself more headaches than it is worth. For example, if you install "conflicting" packages that each have their own /etc/foo file that would be a problem. Sharing /home should be no problem, but I'd dual boot the two distributions; the amount of disk required even by a developer's installation of Ubuntu is really quite small and disks are cheap.

This question is either very hard or impossible to answer if you can't explain the "various reasons".

What are you trying to accomplish? Are you just looking for the option of the lighter LXDE desktop environment and tools? Is there some other goal you are trying to achieve?
