    That will be because you have installed Microsoft Office Click to Run, it creates a drive labelled as Q: which is protected. What is it you want to do?

    My HDD

    now if i enter Disk Management its shown as disk one but it ask's me to initalize it and i cant afford to lose all the information i have on it. How can i get the information off of it?

    If the Ubuntu disc won't give you access to the drive I have no idea what else to do. This is a prime example of the importance to make regular back ups.

    May be some other helpers on this site will have some advice to offer.
