Where did my Standard Toolbar Go?

I have been playing around with some VB6.0 addins downloaded from various sources. One result of which has been that I have completely lost the Standard Toolbar from the VB IDE. By completely lost I mean just that. It doesn't seem to have been toggled, It doesn't even appear in the View->toolbar menu!  Heeelllppp!!

Hi ADSaunders,

You should get it back if you right click the toolbar area, choose customise and then reset each of the toolbars listed.

If it is not in View-->Toolbars, then maybe it is easy just to re-install VB, cause you can't work normally without the standard toolbar.

Well, it's a good job the addin also provided the source code!
The addin is mkcVBHelper from planet source code. It keeps a list in the registry of the menus it has disabled, from which somehow the standard menu was missing. (probably someting I'd done trying to retrieve the situation). I added the standard menu, and toggled fullscreen mode. Lo and behold, my standard menu reappeared!
It seems that if a menu is disabled through VB code, it can only be enabled again through VB code.
Thanks to those who tried to help.
After this hiccough, I will continue assessing the usefulness (or otherwise) of this addin.

(I will post a request to have this Q PAQ'd if no-one objects)

Regards .. Alan
