Administration options missing

We had to reset our Admin password using an earlier thread. At some point we seem to have lost the Admin options because now when I log into that account the ONLY option that appears is change password.

How can I get the other options back?

Thanks,

What if you log in under a different browser?

What do you have in the roles.xml file in the App_Data directory?  If the username in users.xml is "Admin", then Admin should appear in the Administrators role within roles.xml.  Something like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<roles>
  <role>
    <name>Administrators</name>
    <users>
      <user>Admin</user>
    </users>
  </role>
  <role>
    <name>Editors</name>
    <users />
  </role>
</roles>

We check and for some reason the Admin role wasn't in the Administrators area. Fixed and THANKS!
