Create another user, and log on as that user. If all the "headers" i.e.
applets and indicators, reappear, then you can probably just reset the
panels for your normal user.

I searched Google for "ubuntu 10.04 reset gnome panels" (without the
quotes). Near the top of the results, I found a link to an Ubuntu Forums
post[0] that includes a couple of ways to do this, in the terminal. You
might want to copy all the contents of the .gconf directory beforehand
in case it goes wrong or you lose some customisations. Open the terminal
and type (without the quotes):
 "cp -a .gconf backup.gconf"
to do this.
