comment I have Privacy: Record activity ON but how to view log and all the stuff?
Hi, your question was asked earlier here on Askubuntu. Please check this Privacy: Record Activity ON? question. Apparently, you need a tool like gnome-activity-journal just as @Sylvain Pineau pointed out and it is not recommended to view these SQLite database files manually as there are high chances that we might accidentally modify it.

You should try the project homepage and I believe such a question here would be off-topic, so voting to close it.

Your question is pretty much a duplicate of How do I upgrade from Ubuntu 9.10 to 12.10 on my Acer Aspire 3000? & How to upgrade Ubuntu 9.10 to 12.10 via terminal? , however if you really want to take the long road and upgrade, here's a detailed guide - How do I upgrade from 10.04 or 11.10 to 12.04?

comment How to add MIME Type for the Apache webserver?
The httpd.conf is located at /etc/apache2/httpd.conf and it's a good idea to make a backup of the original file before you play around with it. As for the .htaccess file, please refer to @dobey 's answer

comment Popup Malware “openadserving.com”
You don't need to use gedit if you don't have it installed, just use any text editor, even nano, so you could do sudo nano /etc/hosts

comment Google.com redirect malware on FF
Have you tried running Firefox in Safe Mode? That'll disable all extensions, so that might help in troubleshooting if an extension is responsible for it (eg., a rogue greasemonkey script).

comment System doesn't show option to select operating system during startup!
I don't think there is a /etc/grub/menu.lst file in 12.04 since 12.04 uses Grub2. And once again @gnuyoga please do post comments when requesting the OP for further information. Thanks :)
