You could try resetting the excel program back to defaults.

From: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=291288

/regserver Forces Excel to register itself and then quit. Use
this
switch when you want Excel to rewrite all its
registry keys and reassociate itself with Excel
files,
such as workbooks, charts, and others.

So you would click Start Run and type in "excel.exe /regserver"
without the quotes.

This will reset excel and will mean you lose any customisation you have
done to your excel.

It could be a few things...

#1. Any chance that they're just off the screen.

Rightclick on the excel icon on the taskbar (usually at the bottom of the
screen).
select Move and use the arrow keys to see if the toolbars show up.
Hit enter when they're positioned ok.

#2. Are you in full screen?

Hit alt-f8 to get to the VBE
hit ctrl-g to see the immediate window
type this and hit enter
application.displayfullscreen = false

Back to excel...
If you see all the toolbars except for the File|Edit|View... toolbar, then
back to the immediate window of the VBE
type this and hit enter:
application.CommandBars("worksheet menu bar").Enabled = true

#3. If all else fails, you can delete all your customized toolbar file and
start over.

Close excel
Use windows search and look for *.xlb (location and name will vary with the
versions of windows and excel you used).

Rename that *.xlb file to *.xlbOLD

restart excel and test it out a bit.

This does mean that you'll have to recreate any customized changes to your
toolbars, though.

If it doesn't help, delete any newly created *.xlb files and rename the *.xlbOLD
back to *.xlb.
