Solution:1

Welcome to Ubuntu

Personally I would want to start afresh and completely reinstall Ubuntu. This way you can shape it to how you would like it and not put up with someone else's stuff on it.

full installation instructions can be found here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation

You can download the image from here http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Have fun with Ubuntu and if you are not sure of anything don't hesitate to ask.

Linda if possible connect your computer to your router with a cable before you start the fresh install http://www.linlap.com/wiki/Dell+Inspiron+B130
