Tried to download latest mint updates when the computer froze. I unplugged my computer but when it started back up, all my desktop icons and tool bars were missing icons. Please let me know how I can get them back - thanks.

Can you get to a terminal?
if so type the following command

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configue -a

when it's finished reboot.
you can get to a terminal by typing CRTL ALT F1.
you'll need to enter your login info.
When finished enter the command

Code: Select all

shutdown -r now
to reboot.
good luck
