Urgent help sought. I am a computer idiot. I have been running Ubuntu 16.04 successfully for 2 years and last week the computer upgraded me to Ubuntu 17.10.
Then my troubles started.
It boots up and goes to the password page, I enter it, it goes to  the desktop but when I click on any item in the launcher (eg Mozilla or Thunderbird) the spinning wheel spins forever and then the keyboard and mouse become useless after 30-40 seconds. Even if I do nothing the keyboard and mouse become useless...
I have a Dell precision 390 core duo PC

Any ideas what I can do

most grateful
