SharePoint: unable to access in-browser SharePoint menus

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a SharePoint site running under MOSS 2007 on IIS6. Whenever I try to edit the site using the browser, I am unable to access any SharePoint menus. All menu-related graphics, such as the "Site Actions" or "Edit Web Part" buttons, appear as red X's. Additionally, after authenticating, I get the following javascript errors on each page:

Error: Object expected
Error: 'WPSC' is undefined
Error: '_spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames' is undefined

I don't get the errors unless I'm authenticated into the site. Also, the actual page content displays and functions just fine...it's only the SharePoint menus and controls that aren't loading. This is true for every page on the site.

If anyone has any advice, I'd greatly appreciate it.
