Menu items are part of the System User Interface.
Go to HD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences
Drag com.apple.systemuiserver.plist to the Desktop

While there, also drag com.apple.dock.plist to the Desktop
Restart the computer. Restarting will make default plist files back in that folder. This might clear up all your problems.

If it doesn't, log in under a different user account and see how that goes.
