    Thanks to Jitin Tolani at MS Tech Support for finally finding the solution to
    this one. It seems that when I uninstalled Office there were still remnants
    of previous versions in my registry that had gotten corrupted somehow and
    were causing the VBA code to exceed its intended authority and disable the
    menus at a system level rather than in the current database.

    So I uninstalled Office again, deleted the Microsoft Office folder from
    C:\Program Files, deleted the Office folders in the registry in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ and
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft, then reinstalled Office. I am very
    happy to have my menus back.

    For anyone who's curious, now that everything's working properly, the ASCB37
    key doesn't appear in the registry anymore.
