    Strange theme after a download.

    Hardware Specs:
    Asus A52J Series
    Intel I5 processor
    ATI Radeon 5470 graphic card
    4Gb Ram
    350 Gb HD
    Dual-boot With Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7

    Okay guys, I dug myself into a hole with this one. After downloading a file and extracting it from a torrent website ( yes I know this was my first stupid move ) I began to experience some troubles. First, while powering off Scripts showed up on the screen, saying something about a trace. Later, after rebooting, The theme in Ubuntu was changed to look something like Ubuntu 7.04. Pictures are included in this post. The original files I downloaded have been deleted, but to no avail. Any help anyone? Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately, there is no way we can tell what the download did to your computer. The only safe move is to back up your data and do a clean installation.

    However, if you are sure that there is no malware on your system, you can change your theme to the default (Ambiance); then try to find the unwanted theme in Synaptic Package Manager or Ubuntu Software Centre and uninstall.

    In my day, we had outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now we have computers to do those.
