It's likely that you're just booting off your thumbdrive without installing (calles Live Session). You should install Ubuntu once you boot through your thumbdrive. Instructions here.

comment How to change the default permission when creating a file in ubuntu
Post the answer and accept it. :) Also, sudo grants you superuser privileges, that is why if you need to edit some system files or run a program with root privileges, you have to use sudo. There is another command called gksudo which has the same effect except that it is used for graphical applications.

It depends on the program you use. The program would create a file and set its permissions. So, unless you change the source code, you can't do much other than manually changing the permissions.

comment Why did Ubuntu try to self-destruct?
You can preserve some of the previously installed packages and use them for re-installation by backing up the /var/apt/archives. It contains .deb of the packages which were installed by apt.
