You would like the old quick launch bar instead of the new superbar in windows 7.
This is by design
To reactivate the old windows xp quick launch bar you right click on a free space in the superbar and select a new toolbar and navigate to:
"c:\users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch"
and select this directory. Thats it.
