I Like to build and repair computers. I have both a Cubieboard, and Raspberry Pi. I also enjoy refinishing wood furniture.

I like using the terminal, writing basic shell scripts, and sometimes even installing from source :)

Everything I say(type) is not related to anything,
nor does it represent any entity.
The words belong not to anyone.

comment How to repair Ubuntu bootloader?
grub is what ubuntu uses to boot, do you want to disable Ubuntu as well? or do you just want to hide the boot selection screen?

Make a keyboard that does not have those keys? Otherwise I think those shortcuts are built into the code of the browser.

comment How To Uninstall Ubuntu Wubi?
can you list the steps you followed to install, i.e. put cd in drive - did you run a program off the CD while still running windows or a download of wubi that then used an iso? did your computer reboot at any time? What does the OS selection menu that lets you select ubuntu or windows look like(screenshot).

Upgrade problem? I have no problems on 12.04 cleaninstall after following that guide. Try the guide again (the packages have changed, so the old probably didn't survive the upgrade. Or try following the steps on live DVD see if that can play, if so do a clean install

comment How to replace the android on a Netbook with Ubuntu
you might want to ask the android site how to install google apps on it, android.stackexchange.com/questions/27808/… I doubt you would have any luck with Ubuntu as that is basically a low end tablet without a touchscreen.
