Hi I recently installed Linux Ubuntu 12.04 via wubi. I did everything correctly and when the boot screen loads up I select Ubuntu and it shows the log in screen and i log in to my account and once I'm logged in I can see my desktop but I cant see the task bar where it shows the time and battery etc. and my mouse. Also the screen is frozen and I can't control nor do anything. Here our my specs below
