E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. 

So I ran

sudo dpkg --configure -a

And the nvidia uninstaller keeps trying to run. Im not sure why cuz earlier today I wasnt getting this error. Anyways I ran the uninstaller and it sticks here

luke@crunchbang-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up nvidia-installer-cleanup (20120630+3) ...

Welcome to the NVIDIA Software Installer for Unix/Linux


If you plan to no longer use the NVIDIA driver, you should make sure that no X
screens are configured to use the NVIDIA X driver in your X configuration file.
If you used nvidia-xconfig to configure X, it may have created a backup of your
original configuration. Would you like to run `nvidia-xconfig
--restore-original-backup` to attempt restoration of the original X
configuration file?
  [default: (N)o]: 

and wont do anything at all. I noticed I had some strange lock ups earlier so maybe that had something to do with this same problem?
Maybe I should just re-run smxi and totally uninstall nvidia and reinstall the drivers?

Also I noticed that at the same time this occured the border around my windows was broken and some of my installed themes dont load correctly now.

Maybe try uninstalling nvidia-installer-cleanup? It will probably take a bunch of dependencies with it resulting in you having to reinstall all your nvidia stuff. If it doesn't fix the problem, you could at least upgrade everything else before you reinstall the nvidia stuff. smxi might fix the problem too.
