You can use Wine to emulate Windows programs, but I think the performance will fall quite a lot.

Ubuntu problems

Download the free edition of EasyBCD (it's boot-up software) and install it in 'C' -Windows. Run EasyBCD... it's very straightforward. It will identify the operating systems on your computer ... choose 'use EasyBCD boot loader' (or similar) and save the changes.

It sounds as though you have somehow lost the boot loader for Ubuntu (it's in C - Windows) when there was an update, which is quite common ..

Using EasyBCD will return your computer to dual-boot

Plant Vs. Zombies run in an ubuntu( Linux OS)

I have been installing OS for windows and Linux. But I have a problem running online and offline games in linux flatforms.
I am fond of playing offline games too. Since Our clients in the internet cafe' requests PLANT VS. ZOMBIES game be installed in the other units having ubuntu OS 8.10 client desktops.
Just make sure when you have installed the ubuntu it must be accompanied with WINE INSTALLER in order to run the exe. file of the Windows design Plant Vs. Zombies. Copy the folder of the Plant Vs. Zombies files and then paste it in the desktop or home folder of the Linux OS.
Right Click the exe icon the open it with wine program installer. Then just wait for a while then the Plant Vs. Zombies game will load in a linux Program.

Enjoy Playing Plant Vs. Zombies in Windows and Linux Program.

Good Luck....

I put ubuntu the computer over heet and now only work the trial of ubuntu. how vista can run again?

If you erased the Windows partition when you installed Ubuntu you will need to re-insert your Windows Vista disc and reinstall Windows over Ubuntu using that, This will only work if you have enough keys remaining on your Windows Vista License, however. Hope this helps.

Just Curious, nobody has yet to solve this problem and Valusoft won't make a patch for it. Heres the situation the program was made for windows XP but it runs fine on Windows Vista and Windows 7 but after...

You forgot to mention what program this is, and since you mentioned ValueSoft, it could be anything from the 18 Wheels of Steel Line to Crash Day to Midnight Outlaw to Sprint Cars, Just to name a few.
I am assuming you have nhra drag racing top fuel thunder.
You might want to try setting up the game to run in a simulated xp environment, but this is only at best 50% successful. It's listed in windows 7 as "run in windows xp mode." Also you may not have this option in windows 7, if you don't, you can download it here.
To do this you have to right click the program's link, and then navigate through the menu. (Image below for example.)

For a larger version of this photo go here.
If this didn't work...
One thing you might want to try if you are feeling up to a little Operating system work is to find and install as a secondary os, ubuntu.
Then after ubuntu is installed, install wine 1.2.
This is not as easy as i make it sound, so if you are a computer novice, or are leary of doing this then i would not suggest this method.
Wine 1.2 has had an exceptional track record for running other valuesoft games, i am in particular talking about 18 weels of steel.
Ubuntu is available here.
Wine is available via the Synaptic Package Manager, which in turn is available in Ubuntu by holding alt and pressing f2, then typing "gksu synaptic" (minus the quotes) and then entering your password.

I have been given a acer veriton 5100 it has a program called ubuntu it does not have windows program and will not auto run disks that i insert can you give advise

"Ubuntu" is a Linux operating system, not a Windows operating system. It will not run any windows programs or autoplay any windows CD's unless you have an "emulator" or hypervisor installed, which is not by default. Here is a link to the Ubuntu website that you can browse to find out more information on that Operating System -  There you can research the running of a Windows emulator called "WINE" (much to detailed to get into here). Or you can purchase a 3rd party hypervisor, such as VMware Workstation, that will run a virtualized copy of a Windows operating system (such as XP) inside Ubuntu.
Long story short - you cannot use your Windows disks in this laptop with Ubuntu operating system installed without a add-on emulator or program.
Good luck!
