I had Ubuntu version 10 or 11+ and I just installed 12.04, but I can't do anything on it!
It gives me "permission denied" for even just creating new folders.
I'm the only person on this machine, I'm using the same administrator account that I entered while installing it from wubi on windows. I need to download softwares and have a lot of urgent "administrator" tasks - I wouldn't have installed the new version but for some reason my old OS crashed so now I have to. I'd been using the older version with no hiccups at all. I'm not really linux-savvy, I only use some linux-only softwares here.

Please help!

EDIT:
I just realized I should be asking on the wubi forum, so I've posted there. Sorry , can the mods please delete this? I couldn't find a "delete" button here.
