John (outbackjohn) said : #2

can't find any where where it says GRUB is ok only when booting on
top of screen GHU GRUB Version 2.02 beta 2-36 ubuntu 3.18
It was working OK till I updated , after the update was finished I was
told to restart , after desk top is loaded it stops working . As you can
see in the photo none of the icons on the left show up I can open any
of the icons on desktop but can't delete them , also any Icon with a
http address will go on the Internet , also can't delete that off
screen,,,, Hope you can work some thing out , I have a ubuntu 10.10
netbook disk but couldn't boot from it , not that I have that version on
here . it may be I have to start it from windows , which i haven't used
for years
                                                                 Regards
John

If you select an older kernel does the system boot OK?
