    No Media Bar or New Interface on NT 4.0 sp6a (IE 6 with NT 4.0 6a)

    I don't have the media bar showing up or the new interface. I would think that at least the media bar would have been apparent. Is there something I'm missing? I upgraded from IE 5.5.

    Thanks.

    There is a "Media" button just to the right of "Favorites" on the Standard tool bar.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    It does not show up. That or the improved interface. I have other signs that I have IE6 installed ie. the locking toolbars, security, cookie watch etc. But the media bar is not there. And the interface looks the same as it did in 5.5. I was wondering if that was because I have Windows Media Player 6.4 (that is the latest available for an NT machine). Or just because it's an NT machine.

    Just found an article on it finally in the MS Knowledge Base. It's an acknowledged bug in IE6 on NT machines....Article ID: Q298752

    Thanks for your help. Although this still doesn't explain why the interface is the same as before...
