My Gutsy installation is definately very unwell!

I appear to be gradually losing various functionality through nothing I'm
doing, cos I'm finding it hard to do anything!

So far I've lost the bongos at the log on screen - the wav file is no longer
on the system.

My System > Preferences menu options have decreased to just Keyboard and
Screen Layouts

Everything I launch is, well almost go and make a cup of tea, in duration.

Now I know I've got a slowish CPU for a desktop at 1.8 GHz but have 1 Gb of

The XP installation is fine.

So, am I right  in thinking that it's going to be a re-install to make sure
things get back to normal, or is there a clever utility that can look at the
entire system, compare it to the repos, or whatever, and repair it?  I have
nothing installed that isn't on the Live CD.
