It sounds like you have disabled the Unity desktop for your user account.
Restart your computer and at the login screen, look at the panel across the bottom of the screen. One of the boxes should say "Ubuntu," if it says "Ubuntu Classic" expand the window and tick the "Ubuntu" setting. That should restore the Unity desktop.
