Sorry I have no idea what this is or what I should do:-

"Have you tried the Unity2D session?"

Today my PC is working normally ! ? *

What happen as follows:- The mouse would sometimes (but not all the time) be slow or slower, but when I clicked to close a program/app nothing happen at all.

1/ I log in as guest and my PC seamed to work normally, was able to stream 3 prog's from BBC on catchup.

2/ I log out as guest and back in as me (Richard) with system Password.

3/ As it was late desired to close down the PC for the night......but it would not....kept I held the start button on PC until it switch OFF .....

4/ Today I ran terminal and typed .... sudo apt-get update ..... since then it has worked normally.

Any comment ?

I also had another update from Ubuntu the morning

Maybe a bug was affecting your system and an update cured it.
