Yeah, so I had the wonderful missing address bar issue in IE and Windows Explorer.
I checked all over the net and could not find anything that actually solved my problem. Including reg hacks, reinstalling IE and doing sfc /scannow (I'm using Windows Server 2003)...

After much snooping about the OS, I figured out by myself, how to fix it. And figured that I should share it with all.

The problem is that the information in the registry surrounding two dll files has become corrupt and you have to re-register them in order to get the address bar back. This process is very simple:

1. Open a command prompt
2. Run these two commands:
   a. regsvr32 /i browseui.dll
   b. regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

Thats all it takes, after that you should have your Address bar back, this will also fix the Links bar being missing and will fix IE and Windows Explorer not saving your bar settings.

Hope this helps people.
