This is what the OP was wanting to get rid off...are you wanting to remove something else?

I would use Aero (perhaps) if not for the transparent title bar. How would I adjust that? Set Aero peek? Seriously, I would give it another run - your thoughts...

Just turn transparency off period is my suggestion

Personalize->Window Color->Un-check Enable Transparency

Tell me what you think?

EDIT: To see this you need to switch to an Aero theme first

I think you don't like Aero Peek/Thumbnail preview because it is too slow to come up. I found this a problem so the kind folds of sevenforums told me to follow this guide to make it much quicker:

Mouse Hover Time - Change

Ok I did some research and with the RC and above things apparently changed...

So I came up with a "dirty" fix

Open up regedit...
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
Make a new DWORD called ExtendedUIHoverTime and set it to 20000
This above doesn't disable the feature because there is no known way to do so...What it does is make it take 20 seconds from the time you hover a mouse on the button for to to display the thumbnail...hope it helps!
