"Windows/Dockable dialogs/Tool box options" (sic) is actually "Windows/Dockable dialogs/Tool options" and is a different animal (options for the currently selected tool).
If the Toobox doesn't show, it may be opened at screen coordinates that put it off-screen. Exit Gimp, find your Gimp profile directory (in Vista/Seven: C:\users\your_id\.gimp-2. and edit the "sessionrc" file in it. Look for "gimp-toolbox" and see if its position/size look OK, otherwise fix it. You can also erase the "sessionrc" file to make Gimp recreate one and assume default windows positions/contents.

At this point if i can't fix it i might just delete gimp then reinstall might be the best way

Reinstalling won't fix anything, these problems are all due to profile settings,and Gimp won't overwrite them if you reinstall.
Also, have a look at Edit/Preferences-> Window management. You may ant to disable "Save windows position on exit" so that mistakes aren't made permanent, and if you have a setup that pleases you, just hot the "Save windows positions now".
