There is a security option in Internet Explorer zone security settings, the 10th from bottom.
Something like "Allow websites to open windows without address or statusbar", which is disabled by default on internet zone. This is done as phishing preventsion.

As I said, there is no way javascript can hide the bars if the ie default settings are not changed before.
If you need this for an intranet site, you can add your url to trusted sites or local intranet, both zones allow hiding these bars.

I don't think you can hide the address bar on a user's current window but you can create a pop up that has the address bar hidden:
var popup = window.open("http://someurl", "myPopup", 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=0,width=120,height=120');

Open in new window
