Try to do this:
1. Login into Ubuntu
2. Open a terminal by hitting CTRL + ALT + T
3. Insert and run this command:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel

4. Restart, this should work.

When you do this, you should make sure not to accidentally put a space between ~ and / or between / and . in the "rm -rf ..." command, as this somewhat common mistake results in the deletion of all the files in your home directory, which usually includes all your documents and application settings. As the commands are correctly written in eNry's post, you can simply copy them from that post and paste them into the Terminal, minimizing the risk of typos.

Can you help with this problem?
