    If you click on the apple icon in the upper left corner of the screen you can get to system preferences.. so I'm guessing that it's only the icon that has disappeared. That's very strange that the icons have disappeared though. I'd recommend just doing a repair with the installation disk or do a complete reformat. Then they should be back for sure.

    i have tried that but even when i click system prefrences from the top left corner it still does not open and also if i for example want to open blue tooth prefrences it wont let me either, and the problem is i cant seem to find my instilation disks, so does anyone know how to recover it using the terminal or another method?
