I feel badly because I forgot where I posted this so have cross posted.
When I downloaded to desktop, my a/v and MBAM both flagged it so I removed it. I told this story elsewhere in the forum and cannot remember where so am cross posting again. I do niot take it lightly as there are rules for a reason - I do apologize.
I am trying to download Ubuntu to flashdrive and run it from there as you would in a VM or in the desktop with a dual boot. I wantted to know if this is feasible and functional but need a good, clean installer to do it.
I assume the downloader is the reason it did not work.
