If you saved your actions and panels you should be able to find them, but need OS to say where.

Do you have a backup of your preferences area?
Sorry I'm just getting back to you folks. I found where CS6 keeps my preferences. Then I went to my NAS to find the file backups and after reloading my backup program (long story) I eventually copied all the stuff back to where it was supposed to go.
Thanks everyone; I'm back up until the next time Photoshop surprises me with the unexpected!
