Address Bar - XP SP3

Having become accustomed to relying upon the address bar as a repository for
frequently accessed websites - kinda neat because additioinal sites appear
in new tabs, it has disappeared completely, even from the toolbar list!
This after loading XP SP3.

Is there a possibility of getting it back? I have done a search for the
folder, and there is nothing there.

See:

"The Address toolbar no longer appears on the taskbar after you install
Windows XP Service Pack 3".

Re: Address Bar - XP SP3

Thank you both for your prompt & effective replies!

I replaced the ui dll in the win/sys32 folder & am back to using the address bar as originally intended.

Re: Address Bar - XP SP3

I went to this url, did what I was told by the kb article and I now have my addressbar toolbar back. It did not dissappear again after I restarted my computer as I`ve read has happened to some. If the addressbar toolbar has dissappeared purely as a result of the sp3 installation, you will not get either of the two the error messages indicated in this article.
I have followed the other links posted in these forum replies and finally found that this one gives the actual step by step process.


Happily living with sp3

Be sure you do exactly as it says or it will not work.
