Problem with Nautilus

I am a relative newbie currently running Hoary on a Dell4300, which was 
upgraded from Warty to Hoary a month ago. Today, I had a complete lockup 
with the screen going blank and when I rebooted everything seems to be 
working except Nautilus. I can launch applications from the gnome menus 
without any problems. However, the directories on my desktop have 
disappeared, and I cannot launch the Desktop or my Home directory from the 
Places menu. When I try, nothing happens. When I type 'nautilus' at a 
terminal prompt, nothing happens. I am tempted to reinstall nautilus using 
Synaptic but before I do so was just looking for some advice as to whether 
that is the right thing to do. Thanks for any help.
