Windows 7: Toolbar at top screen - NOT taskbar

Toolbar at top screen - NOT taskbar

Hi all,
Just migrated from XP to 7 and one thing I'd like to do is set up my desktop the way it was in XP. I've done just about all the tweaks to accomplish that, but 7 won't let me add a toolbar to the top of the screen as I could in XP. I don't like the dock that came with this computer and I'd rather make my own toolbar. Any way to achieve this? Thanks.

PS. I'm not talking about moving the taskbar or quickbar to the top of the screen. This would be a separate toolbar with a folder as it's contents.

Thanks for the response. I am aware of 3rd party apps that I could try. Are you saying there is no way to do what I want to do with Windows 7?

manwithcake, no - the "toolbar" is lost forever in Windows 7. It's a sad fact...
