They have ActiveX disabled; the menu structure on the left side consists only of flash elements. No Flashplayer, no menus.
Just another badly designed page.

What OS are you using?

You probably need Microsoft Java VM...  (msjavx86.exe)

Yes, and this user probably has ActiveX disabled in his IE settings, which prevents the flash plugin from running and displaying the flash menus.
Go to the Security tab in the properties of IE, change the Internet security settings to allow (or ask for) the execution of ActiveX controls (with the usual risks involved).
As far as other sites are concerned, they might rely on JavaScript to be allowed for their menus.
If this is a domain environment, these settings might have been disabled by a group policy, and for a good reason.

I changed the setting on IE security, and enabled AvtiveX controls. It still does not work.

What is this Microsoft Java VM for?

You don't need Java (neither the MS Virtual machine nor the SUN version) for this.
Is JavaScript ("Active Scripting") enabled (or set to ask the user) as well?
