Alt+F11 takes you to the Visual Basic Editor. Did you checked there to see if the macros are there?

Yes, and it opened an empty book.  I didn't delete them, but, it looks like the entire personal macro book is missing.  Do you know where the file is located?

Then it's usually in:
C:\Documents and settings\username\application data\microsoft\excel\XLSTART

note that the 'application data' folder is hidden by default so you need to enable explorer to show hidden files and folders.

However, the first thing I would check is in Excel: click the Help menu, then About Microsoft Office Excel, then click the 'Disabled Items...' button in the bottom right corner and see if Personal.xls is listed as being disabled.
