Look at Tools -> Customize to show/hide/set properties for toolbars/menus (which I think your kind of blurry pdf is showing). Click the Properties button and see if you can check the configuration which might be set to not allow showing/hiding customizations.
Here's some code I saw once (can't remember who posted it though) on commandbars:
Dim cbar As Object
' /// Show or kill the menus (will error so need the resume next)
On Error Resume Next
For Each cbar In Application.CommandBars
cbar.Visible = True (to set the menus visible)
cbar.Visible = False (to set the menus invisible)
Set cbar = Nothing
' /// standard error handling
On Error GoTo err_Form_Load
Hope it helps. If not, can you see the menu bar when you create a new mdb? If not, I'm guessing it could possibly be an option setting. If so, try importing the Menus from the new mdb to the mdb you're having a problem with.
