Hi, I'm a new Mac user. My MBA runs Mountain Lion 10.8.2. Then I realised that some icons on my Desktop Menu Bar, Safari Menu Bar and Finder Menu Bar are missing. Here are some snapshots:

You might try disk permission fix using Disk Utility.

Open Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility (or Command+Spacebar, begin typing Disk Utility & click Return)

Select your hard drive and then:

I looked on Apple's Support Community and this was occurring to numerous people back in November 2012.

One poster discovered that booting into Safe Mode corrected things, this was confirmed by several others.

RomanTS: "have good news. Few minutes ago I tried to login in safe mode in mac os x (simply press Shift during booting) and when mac was booted in "Safe mode" I logged in my account and after rebooted to normal boot. This fixed issues."

I'd give this a shot. Good luck, if it works, please let us know. :)
