Completely puzzled

I'm running Win ME and am using IE Explorer 6.0.***

The problem that I have is probably simple, but is giving me one heluva problem.

When I surf the web with IE explorer I noticed that the bar above the start button and task bar is gone. It's the one that tells you the web address on the left when you click on a link and has the blue bar on the right that scrolls horizontally to show the web page loading.

How do I get that bar back?

Thanks in advance.
