Hello Blaklite,

Sorry, but you cannot get rid of that toolbar in Windows Explorer. It's basically the same as the one in Vista, but with a few more features instead.

Actually, there is a way. Works for Vista too.
  1. Download Reshack
  2. In Reshack, navigate to: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor (If you're using another theme, navigate to that folder)
  3. Backup, then open Shellstyle.dll
  4. Navigate to: UIFILE\1\1033
  5. Search for: <style resid="FolderBandStyle">
  6. Under that, you'll find:

    background="argb(0, 0, 0, 0)"

  7. Change it to:

    background="argb(0, 0, 0, 0)"


  8. Click Compile Script and save it somewhere as Shellstyle.dll, then copy to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor and overwrite the original.

Let me know if you have any questions!
