sytem completely scrambled.

Asked by Dorothy Johnson on 2012-04-12

I installed the updates as suggested. Afterward, I tried to go to e-mail, Background changed, and would not close. Then no folders of desktop files would not open. They would clash, then overlap, then the screen just went crazy. Can I restore the computer to the previous status befor the download? How. Please help me. I am new to Ubuntu and I just started on Saturday. Everything is completly out of sync.!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
