I logged into to Magento's Admin panel to find it is broken. All the tabs & sub-tabs are appearing in distorted way. I'm attaching screenshot below. How this happened suddenly? Any idea?

Try restoring files from adminhtml and admin css from your version you have.

Provide more information about last patches, modules, changes you made.

A bit old - sorry to not get here sooner :).

I ran into exactly this problem (from what the screenshot tells me). Couldn't find a solution anywhere. Finally realized a row had been added to core_config_data which didn't have a path. This seems to kill the Magento admin good.
