Hello Shane..

Looks like you have messed up your ubuntu desktop..

Course to a terminal (Press cntrl + alt +f1 or f2 in the login screen) Or boot up in recovery mode (Usually 2nd option in grub menu)

and give the following command:

sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop


sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

and reboot your system..

sudo reboot

Hope it helps

Bhavani Shankar.

Thanks Bhavani Shankar, that solved my question.
