IE6 missing "File" menu option

When I launch IE6, depending on the group the user is a member of, the "File" option is not on the menu bar (File, Edit, View, Favorites, etc.).  If they are not a member of this specific group, everything is normal.  I'm assuming this is a policy?  Where would I change it?  It just started last week, and nothing has been changed - why would it start all of a sudden?

It doesn't seem to be a problem with IE, If Admin or other non-members of a specific group log in, everything is fine.

Does the File menu show up for them in Windows Explorer?
The Group Policy "Remove File menu from Windows Explorer" under User Configuration|Administrative Templates|Windows Components|Windows Explorer does affect Internet Explorer as well.

If not done through policy, but directly through the registry it would be found in:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoFileMenu"=dword:00000001
