I removed the package apt-get remove unity-webapps-facebook. After restarting, nothing but my desktop icons show. The top menu, and the leftside one is gone.

Opening the terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T, and typing unity tells me It's been uninstalled.

Normally ubuntu connects automatic on wifi ;). But I am happy you solved your problem. I always forget that there are laptops where the wifi works. – Thomas15v Mar 7 '13 at 19:02
I used Ubuntu at my school for the first time today, so it hadn't saved the password there :). – Frederik Spang Mar 7 '13 at 19:21
