i've done this before, after the blue post told me to 'reinstall the addons' (whatever that means) i moved my interface folder out of the wow folder, hopped on my alt, exited, and there was no new folder. i made one and downloaded about 7 addons and put em inside. no result.

Go into the WoW folder where you are installing the addons and then start WoW by clicking on the wow.exe there.
the shortcut leads to the wow in my docs. not sure why but i have a shortcut right next to the exe. i have tried both.

the screenshot is above, and if it wasn't correct it wouldn't make much sense because as i said before, without tampering with any addons or anything, it went from working one day to gone the next.

While WoW should work from anywhere (including your external hard drive or a thumb drive) just try moving it from that location to see if it helps.

Also, to expand on what nightcracker said, try changing some options in Interface Options, visiting the auction house, bank, etc.
moved to program files and .exe still had no addon button.

took another screenshot, this time of my wow folder.. anything look fishy?
