I don't know why they disappeared, but you may be able to get them back with the menu editor:

- Right-click the Applications menu, and select "Edit Menus"
- In the menu editor that opens, scroll down the list in the left, and select "System"
- In the list beside that one, make sure the checkboxes are checked beside "Preferences" and "Administration"
- Close the menu editor, and hopefully everything will be back to normal
