You're using GNOME right?

You don't really need the panels. Middle click on the desktop to see your menus.

Look in system and launch the gnome control center and see if you can create a new edge panel.

You can also delete all the /home/user/.gnome* directories, then log out and back in to X.

Did you try logging out of X and logging back in? I have heard that will do it.

Control-alt-backspace will log you out.

What did you do, use xkill on your panel?
