Missing menu in SharePoint 2010 but only on a particular PC.

In SharePoint 2010, in my Team Site at the Top Level, there is normally a menu in the top right corner, showing my Name and giving access to My Site, My Profile, My Settings, Sign in as a different User and Sign Off. On my PC this is NOT visible BUT when I log on to the same account on another PC is it IS visible. In either case, if I go to Site Actions and Site Settings the menu is visible. Any ideas on how I can make it visible all the time on my PC? Thanks.

Are you using the default security zone settings on the PC where you do not see the menu?

I am using the default Internet Explorer settings. They look similar to the other PC.

I have tried on another PC and it works fine - it is only my Laptop where I have a problem. The laptop has Fingerprint Authentication and I am wondering of this might have something to do with it?

I was considering the fingerprint authentication as it is a difference between my PC and the others but I don't see how this could cause a menu to disappear so I am still seeking a solution!

Have you verified SharePoint is recognizing it as the same user account when you access it via the PC where it isn't working?

Yes - it comes up with my name.

I have just downloaded Mozilla Firefox 8 and it works correctly in that browser. So it must be an issue with Internet Explorer 9.

Are the other PCs not using Internet Explorer 9? I have IE9, and am able to see it on a non-SP1 farm.

Normally it is the browser problem IE 64bit browser and 32bit browser work differently at times

All PCs are using IE9 (same version) 64-bit.

IE9 installs both 32-bit and 64-bit on a WIndows 64-bit operating system. Make sure you are testing with the 32-bit version, as the 64-bit version of IE9 is only partially supported. Look for the "Browser support matrix" table:
