compiz launcher failed and no taskbar

just upgraded to 12.04 and have lost my taskbar at the top of the screen and launcher? on left side.
after the install got message that compiz launcher had failed.
one log says that compiz was spawning too rapidly
very difficlult to open a web browser without menus
browser opens with only about a third of the screen used
runing apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager changes the browser to about 90 percent of the screen
but goes back to smaller veiw when I reboot
cannot close windows without the taskbar...
have to use a terminal to shutdown or reboot...
using gnome
not sure if nvidia drivers are causing problems

edit: also lost my zim files...they had my old fixes for almost the same problems with the taskbar dissappearing with every upgrade
