go to system>administration>software sources. a window will open there click on 'download from' drop down, select others and click find best mirror. it should change your download server to a faster and possibly better..

Ubuntu is different from windows so you wont find all the apps that are in windows but there certainly are alternatives.

Can you help with this problem?
