Short answer.. No.

Longer answer... Not directly, as it's built into Explorer itself, however, you could try writing a toolbar to repliate it, if you can manage to tap into the API to grab the current location of the Explorer window.

have a look at the application "QTadressbar", it is exactly the vista bar..

requires .NET 2.0 on XP.
