    I know this is a bit old now but I would say the very first thing to do is to go   /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/ and check the names of the files. OS X can rename the menu files and then they will not work. For example somehow my got rename This happend to Timemachine, Volume and some other vital icons. I tried anything and everything I could to try to find the problem. It wasn't till I decided I would try to copy my from a working mac to the one that was having issues that I noticed it somehow got renamed. I went in changed it back and BAM! all I had to do was check and uncheck the item I wanted back and it was all good. Hope this helps someone.
