As far as I am aware LXDE has never been installed on this machine !  
Though you having mentioned it, I looked through the menu on the 
login screen and clicked on TDE and then Login.  Behold the machine 
started up as normal.  At this moment I don't know if I'm going to 
have to do this every time or if its just a one off.  It is not 
normal behaviour at all, and I haven't seen anything in the logfiles 
that would give me a clue.
