    System -> Shutdown button disappeared

    So, hello everybody. I have some questions, but will explain the situation first. I recently tried to upgrade to 10.10, but had to unplug the internet cord, so canceled the upgrade. Then I tried to upgrade again, and it continued upgrading, starting from the moment where I stopped it. It upgraded, but when I restarted the system and chose Linux (installed through Wubi), I got to GRUB> window, all black. Couldn't do anything there, didn't know how and what I should have been doing in there. So, then I reinstalled system, and looks like I forgot to change the name, and it was left as is. I reinstalled it again (good that I downloaded the image and put it in the same folder with Wubi), and wrote the name I wanted - just "linux". So, now whenever I log in, I see the login windows saying "C2D" (my PC's name), and password is required. I changed it, but still, it's not the same look as it was before. And if I want to restart or shut down, I have to press the power button. But I want to just click System and then Shutdown to display the shutdown window. Also, when I log in (write password, hit Enter) Power management window shows up and says something, then "cancel" and "force quit" (sorry if I'm wrong here, using Russian linux). So, I tried "rm -rf (whatever else continued here)", tried "sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm", nothing works. So, how do I get the screen I used to have and like?
    P.S. ready to reinstall Linux, just do whatever possible to resolve it. Hope you guys help me. Thanks in advance.

    OK, so. Looks like it fixed itself.
