Okay.  I'm trying to figure out what I should be doing.  Originally, I went straight to the BIOS Boot Menu (Fn + F12 on my computer) Which only showed four objects, which I don't remember save that "USB HDD Generic Flash Disk" was one of them.  My original thought was to go to that, and hit enter, but that just makes the screen flash.  Looking through Google, I can tell that there's a 'boot priority' apparently in the Setup Menu.  Am I supposed to set the USB to the first boot option then switch it back when I'm done?
Nevermind. Did you actually boot to the thumbdrive or did you boot to windows and then opened the thumbdrive? I just had windows 8 see the ISO file as a new device and try to install Ubuntu. Are you booting using the LEgacy BIOS or UEFI?
I think you did something wrong when creating the thumbdrive. I just downloaded the ISO file fresh and UNetbootin and followed the instructions and booted right to a screen with a blue windows that says UNetbootin along the top and then has a list of options to boot to. The only thing I can think that you did wrong was you did not click the diskimage option in UNetbootin.  Can you try that part again?
Sorry I missed your earlier posts. I am going to go over the instructions tonight to see what is going on and I will have an answer for you real late to night but probably tomorrow morning.
Well, now it is acknowledging the flash drive, but it comes up as "Install Ubuntu"??? 

I am so confused. 
I borrowed a friend's computer, plugged in the USB drive, downloaded the iso file and the UNetbootin and followed the directions, then got the prompt to restart now. Since that was a friend's computer, I told it no, unplugged the usb, uninstalled/deleted the files, then went back to my computer.

I tried rebooting straight into the BIOS Boot Menu via Fn + F12, and the USB Generic HDD was there, but anytime I hit enter, the screen went blank for a second before returning back to the menu.

I tried going through System Settings and clicking recovery, so that it booted into Window's little help section, then clicking Use a Device, then USB HDD (which was apparently the one to use according to the internet) but that proceeded to boot normally.

Am I missing something? 

Also, my computer no longer acknowledges the flash drive as plugged in, though the indication LED is on. 
Current News / Windows 10 to tighten security with prominent 2FA

Although traditional single password options will still be supported, the whole design looks more security focused than previous versions of the Operating System, with built-in protections in place to separate personal and corporate data, with all of the latter’s apps, data, email and other content automatically encrypted.

Don't allow it access to the network. just run the scan with Avira and let me know how it turns out.
Hey, I'm getting ready to do that Avira thing, backing up all of my files and whatnot, but SEP just popped up and says "NT Kernel _System has changed since the last time you used it.  Name:  NT Kernel _System   Application: NTOSKRNL.exe    Do you want to allow it to access the network?  Yes No Detail >>"  What do I do with this?
I just checked to make sure, and it appears the directions have changed. The first set of instructions are on how to create the USB drive. The instructions on how to run the scan are here.
