Hi Peter

I haven't downloaded another version. 

I tried the safe mode and that didn't work either. I saw on the Ubuntu support site that you could give some parameters at start up, I followed the instructions but nothing happened. I could not get it to a stage where I can specify the parameters.

The only option for me that I thought about after is to back up all my data and upgrade through the package manager. But first  I will download another version of 9.10 and see what happens, and if that fails then the suggestion about the goat might be an option!!
