Windows 7: Weird artifact on window corner when using smaller title bars

Weird artifact on window corner when using smaller title bars

I've set my window title bars and caption buttons to be smaller by using the built in advance appearance settings in windows. I like this much better than the default large buttons and bars. This produces an odd graphical bug. What appears like a hangnail is present on the top left corner of some windows. I have attached a screenshot of this. Also, taskbar icons look squashed and blurry. Anybody know how to fix this?

Completely hide title bars?
Is it possible? I find them to be fairly useless. Ideally, the title bars would only appear when holding the WIN key, but I doubt that's possible. Is there some trick I can use to rid myself of titlebars across all windows? I've seen Firefox popups without them, so it has to be possible on some...
