Thanx spikeychris that did the trick but what happened to them in the first place and surely windows should have a menu to replace the toolbars

Something had damaged the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar key.

There are 3 sub keys: Explorer, ShellBrowser, WebBrowser'

In each of these sub-keys is an entry for ITBarLayout if this is moved or changed it kills the menu. The fix you just ran repairs it, you could have run a manual fix by delting the ITBarLayout key but the .exe is a lot simpler.

Glad you're sorted.
