I saw a couple of similar treads but I have a slightly different problem so I thought I'd post it separately.

I recently upgraded to 14.04 and now I can't login. When I enter my password at the login screen it accepts it but then I get a window saying


System program problem detected

Do you want to report the problem now?

with buttons saying "Cancel" and "Report problem..." Four such windows appear in succession when I press either and then I only see the background of the login screen and nothing happens. I can login into the shell with CTRL+ALT+F1.

As an addendum, what also appears to have happened is that I can't get into Windows 7 either (this is a dual boot machine) after the upgrade. It just hangs at the "starting Windows" screen. I hadn't noticed this until now because I had't tried to launch Windows after the upgrade until now.
