I've only had Freya on my computer for 3 days. I'm guessing it's something to do with the Ubuntu updates which changed my logo. So far nothing more than this logo has changed, Grub still calls it elementary OS

I'm sure I didn't change the update settings. I am using Moka icon theme.

Is there any way that I can change the logo back?

Logo changed because you use Moka icon theme.

If theme was installed from PPA, logo can be returned to default by following command in the terminal:

mkdir -p ~/.icons/Moka/48x48/places && ln -s /usr/share/icons/elementary/places/48/distributor-logo.svg ~/.icons/Moka/48x48/places/distributor-logo.svg
