if you create another user account  and log into it, are the
menu/panels missing as well?  If they are  then there is something
wrong with your whole installation.  If the problem is only occuring
in your account, then the problem is only with the specific setup of
your user account, and thus it will be a somewhat waste of time to
re-install your whole computer to solve this problem.
