Can you describe more exactly what exactly you did at this stage?
I've had the exact same results when deleting the CLSID registry settings relating to the address bar. These registry settings were discussed earlier in this thread.
Which ones specifically?

Oh, it was so long ago, I really don't remember. They should be somewhere in this thread though. I know at least one of them should do the trick. Sorry I don't have a more concrete answer, but I really can't remember off the top of my head.

Well, I renamed {056440FD-8568-48e7-A632-72157243B55B} to _{056440FD-8568-48e7-A632-72157243B55B}
and the address bar disappeared in the open/save dialogs.

The problem is that it seems this dll is called from Explorer directly (unlike the open/save dialogs). I found this CLSID inside explorerframe.dll and tried to change some digits in it, but after that explorer refused to start. Maybe on Win7 this would work.

By the way, I renamed the following keys:
{C0B4E2F3-BA21-4773-8DBA-335EC946EB8B}
{DC1C5A9C-E88A-4dde-A5A1-60F82A20AEF7}
{42F85136-DB7E-439C-85F1-E4075D135FC8}
(all these keys exist in registry in two places each)

and in many applications (for instance, Notepad) the file open/save dialogs changed to the XP style:
