    No address box in address bar in Internet Explorer

    I have Internet Explorer 6 on my old HP laptop that's running XP. Tried to upgrade but failed - so I need to fix IE 6 until I can figure out why I can't upgrade. I currently have an address bar, but no box for the address, and thus can't type in addresses. I need IE for the Microsoft dowloads I need to do for this ancient system. Will resetting Internet Explorer Settings (as per Microsoft KB923737 solve this problem? Will a reset delete my Firefox browser?

    Hi : As far as I know, you can not or should not "upgrade" to IE7 or IE8 UNLESS your XP Operating System is SP ( Service Pack ) 2 or SP3 ; do you have one of those Service Pack(s) on the computer ? IF no, that should be your priority .

    For Windows Explorer, in Windows XP Home Edition, you may have to re-enable the Address bar in Windows Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Open Windows Explorer.
    2. Right-click a blank area of the toolbar or the menu bar
    3. Click the Address Bar item.
