Windows 7 Homre Premium x64
Hide scroll bars

Hello, everyone!

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, but find that Scroll Bars are a bit annoying nowadays since there's millions of way to scroll so I'd like to hide them. Is there a way to do so or is it almost impossible? I've Googled it, but no luck so far =(

Thanks in advance
