Hi and thank you for helping.

I am running Hardy and I am having problems with my startup. My splash screen takes a long time go away, say about 3 minutes. Until it goes away I can't see my notifications area, such as the nm-applet, and awn / katapult will not start up. I don't know what happened it was working fine last night and when I started my computer this morning the problems were upon me. I did not install any programs, however, I believe I did run an update last night.

Other symptoms is that my Firefox browser has lost my bookmarks and when I click the button to bring the shutdown menu up it removes the panel from the screen. Also when I brought up gnome in safe mode it said there was a problem with nautilus, I tried to reinstall it through synaptic my marking it for reinstall but it did not help.

Thank you for your time and speedy responses :)
