Update Deleting Minimize/Maximize/Close Icons on the top right corner of windows

I am using 7.10 and have always updated as it shows I need it.  I also 
use Gnome exclusively.

I also noted that I could not get a terminal just now.  I wonder if it 
is not related to my nvidia setup.  I have the nvidia driver installed.

How could a driver affect a window gadget?  That is what I can't 
understand and therefore thought it might be a general update.

If you are using IE on Windows, you might want to at least think about using Mozilla for browsing and Thunderbird for mail.
