I would like to install ubuntu on my laptop and completely erase all the previous work on it. I have downloaded ubuntu onto my usb and now I don't know what to do. Its a windows. should I just use the windows installer, would that erase all the previous data?

Just make sure it is a bootable USB (if not you can make one really easy with a program called pendrive. I followed Ubuntu's own tutorial) and then shut down your computer and restart. It should boot from the USB and you will be given the option to install Ubuntu. Click that and then it will ask if you want to run along side windows or replace it. Selecting to replace windows will delete all your windows information and do a clean install of Ubuntu. Hope that helps!
