To test the reboot we type in terminal uname-r will show you the kernel version you're using if everything is correct:
~$ uname -r

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.3.1-030301-generic

And reboot.

In case of problems with nVidia graphics cards here is a solution to start the terminal and type:

cd /usr/src/linux-headers-3.3.1-030301-generic/arch/x86/include

sudo cp -v generated/asm/unistd* ./asm
And reinstall all packages as a guide.
