Hi All,

I've been round and had a look at his machine and seen the problem 1st 

In every application the letter on the menu bar that has an underscore 
either at the begining or end has the letter missing.

Many of the folders have no visible name, but if you click to rename the 
folder a blue bar appears the same length as the name if you could see 
it.  Most of the flyout menus have either the full name missing or part 
of the name.  There are spaces in the menus that a completly blank.
On logout there are similar missing letters and blank spaces.

I also discovered that a number of items on the desktop were 
marked "Read Only" and making them read/write allowed the app called to 

Hope this helps to find out what he has done.  He swears that the last 
thing he did was to copy pictures off his phone before going on 
holiday, at which time everything was working.  Since calling me he has 
tried to update his machine by running Synaptic, without any success.

Thanks Guys:
