Hi,

1) I've hacked the registry to add a delay, it doesn't disable anything, but those links pop up out of the blue later.
2) I've tried 7 taskbar tweaker, unsuccessfully.
3) I don't like big themes, & already had the basic "windows classic theme" set in the personalization field.
4) I even tried the gpedit setting: "Start Menu and Taskbar in left pane of Local Group Policy Editor.
Scroll down to and double click on Turn off taskbar thumbnails in right pane of Local Group Policy editor. pick enabled button and click OK"

This is what i'm discussing about:

"Taskbar List Mode"


http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/75804-taskbar-list-thumbnail-previews-mode-change.html

& it's not even present in:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband]

as "NumThumbnails"=dword:00000000


Either.

I'm clueless & sick of those "stupid" links popping up & interfering with my clicks,
God bless Gates .. .

Am i obliged to keep 7 taskbar tweaker opened & running in the taskbar ? if yes, isn't there a way to patch explorer & avoid this for good ? I tried another option, ungroup explorer.exe in the inspector section of this tool as explained in the author's page & it didn't work either .. .

then i would need that to be run as a service, i don't need that tweak to be accessible nor appearing as a "vital" element of my desktop experience.

Yes it needs to run as a service but it doesn't in the background I do not use this but I did install it and look at it and there is a way to hide the taskbar icon open up settings and make sure the run at startup and hide tray icon is checked.
