    Can anyone tell me why my clock and bluetooth menu bar dont appear when i selected them to show?

    I have to go into prefs and click the show clock again, whilst the bluetooth is already selected and i have to uncheck and check for it to appear?

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    I did a clean install for other reasons (file vault password) and im happy with everything (went from 40gb on HD to 16Gb, nice!) - so its weird that this little glitch occurs after a clean Tiger install. The only 3rd party item on the menu bar is 'main menu' program.

    Also delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sytemuiserver.plist. It contains a list of the loaded menu extras.

    I've got the same problem. I deleted the preferences.plist, reset the PRAM, and can not find the system ui plist. Even after rechecking the options, I still can not get anything to come up, even spotlight is gone. I'm haxie free, btw.
