You can try reconfiguring GNOME. Here's a link to the instructions:


Go into a failsafe terminal and enter the following commands:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-desktop-data
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-control-center
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-menus
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-system-tools
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-session

Then reboot.
