Menus missing-the whole row (file, edit, view etc)

 :exclamation
I downloaded IE7 a few days ago. It's very different from IE6. I don't see any of the usual Menu tabs, such as file, edit, view, go etc. There is no help tab to see if I actually got the finished Ie7. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the beta. It wasn't supposed to be. I get to my favorites by clicking on the gold star located at the far left of the "toolbar" (all icons).

My entire computer is running very slow both offline and on. I often lose my internet connection and can't load web pages with either IE7 or Mozilla Firefox. Would the 2 browsers create a conflict?  It didn't seem to before IE7.  I've been trying out Firefox for a couple of weeks now, but some sites require IE.
Any suggestions?
I run Zone Alarm, AVG and have AdAware also.

I'm running a Dell Dimension 2400
XP Home Edition SP2
CPU 2.20 ghz
512 ram
40 GB hard drive NTFS - 72 rpm
DSL Westell Modem Model 2200
Thanks for any help you can give

Right-click in some of the blank space in the menu area (e.g. to the right of the tabs).  Check the "Menu bar" option.  There should be no conflict between the two browsers.

Your computer may benefit from a system cleanup.  I use the following routine on all the computers I service:

CCleaner
Eusing Free Registry Cleaner
Defrag
Spybot S&D
Virus check
Windows Updates
X-Ray PC (to check for rogue processes)

Thanks so much Guru.  I did that and now have my menus!!

Thanks also for the tips on system cleanup.  Your computers must be squeaky clean.

They are, at last until the users get to them!
