Thanks Will,

I'll try and do this later today (I am using my laptop for work right 
now - gnome-fall-back is rather refreshing and quite usable) but can you 
tell me if this will delete my personal settings for the Launcher and 
Unity before I do?

This has happened to me a few times over the years for no obvious reason 
and is a right PITA to get back as all my settings are invariably lost.
