    The files are not important for me, because i have them backup on my NAS. But its the applications and Nvidia driver that takes so much time.

    Yes but i get an error
    Code:
    goubuntu@MonsterDesktopU:~$ sudo dpkg --remove -force --force-remove-reinstreq linux-image-3.8.0-15-generic
    dpkg: error: conflicting actions -f (--field) and -r (--remove)
    
    Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages [*];
    Use `dselect' or `aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
    Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
    Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
    Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;
    
    Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through `less' or `more' !

    Glad you got it back! I am with you, I hate clean installs if they can be avoided and it looks like Elfy saved the day!

    The final release is April 25th so it would have been a pain to do a fresh install now.

    That is what is so good about this forum - so many people willing to help.

    Good - sorry I fail pasted the first time.

    I'd even checked it before hand to make sure it worked
