    hi! i just rebooted and now nothing is loading in my menubar along the right hand corner (not even spotlight). when i try to do a spotlight keyboard shortcut, i get th little thud sound that means i can't do that. but if i do option-space, which goes back to the last Input used, it switeches back to Canada CSA, which is weird. also, in system prefs, it seems liek if i go into some of the things i had in the bar to re-select, sysprefs will crash. anybody have an idea?

    i fixed it now. sorry.

    Try opening up Activity Monitor (/Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor.app) and see if anything (like SystemUIServer) is red. Also, try moving ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist out of that folder and rebooting.

    D-Link Bluetooth Module???

    I've had this happen with my iBook G4. I traced it back to the D-Link USB Bluetooth module. When I rebooted with it plugged-in, the menu bar totally hung up just like you described. When I disconnected it "on the fly" the menu quickly loaded-up. Weird.
