Windows 7: Vista hack to remove Folders section of NavPane?

Vista hack to remove Folders section of NavPane?

I know I'm in W7 Forum. But Vista Forums does not have a Customization Subforum. I'm just wondering, since you guys are into the shell internals, if anyone has come across a hack to get rid of the Folders section of the Navigation Pane in Vista??

I know I can drag it down to the bottom. But it won't stay there. I move to another location in Explorer and it insists on expanding that stupid Folders section cutting into the space for the Favorites.

Sniff. Only took about an hour to wear off. Unfortunately the system works too well to justify sticking W7 on. Plus it has a funky "fake raid" driver that might be a pita if I change the OS. HP off the shelf has it's ++++ and ----

It's a shame the W7 solution doesn't work. That thing is cool. Just check mark the stuff you want in the NavPane. Oh well. I'll just have to keep clicking on the damn thing to pop it down.

Remove Vista from Vista / Win7 Dual Boot - Separate Drives
I have two drives (C and D) with Vista on one and Win 7 on the other (not sure if they're actual drives or partitions of a single drive, how do I tell?). I am dual booting and never use Vista. Starting to need the disk space and want to delete Vista. Is this difficult in this scenario?
