Fresh install of 4.6 security and Crytography is in the applications menu and not where it should be within the Parrot sub menu so I simply did System > Preferences > Look and feel > Main Menu… then dragged Crytography to the parrot menu and BOOM suddenly all the applications menu dissappeared.
Something very wrong with this install.
I created a new user and logged in and the same thing happened, so it is repeatable.
I then did a fresh install again and fully updated in hope the bug has been fixed, sadly it is still present.
Im thinking of trying a home edition install then upgrading to security to setup the menu correctly… seems to be the only way forward.
