Hi, So my laptop recently stopped working in a typical situation I would start my laptop everything would be normal but then get the blue screen when the little loading bar came up and my laptop would restart so I decided to make my usb into a linux installer and installed Ubuntu 11.04 (if the version helps with my situation) on to my second partition I lossed about 40gb worth of data but I wasn't too bothered as I had about 75% of that data on my 1st partition.Before all this happened I had my laptop repaired (It would load REALLY REALLY REALLY slowly and crash) after the repair I kept getting the bluescreen a friend said it was because of a new program so I quickly uninstalled everything I didn't have before EXCEPT AVG internet security (which the repair guy installed along with those other programs) and still kept getting the bluescreen.But then oneday I got the bluescreen and the laptop restarted (like I stated above). So after this long "story" I want to know if I can uninstall AVG through ubuntu I can access all teh files from the partition that contained windows.An Help?

No you cannot remove Windows Applications from within Ubuntu.

Can you load Windows at all via Safe Mode?

Hit F8 just after the BIOS Splash Screen.

No it will not do, because of the Windows Registry.

Unfortunately, you cannot run regedit on the affected Windows install.

No there isn't anyway to access that control panel feature from within Linux you need Windows.
