Windows 7: Need help modifying ShellStyle.dll

Need help modifying ShellStyle.dll

I already modified 3 ShellStyle.dll files (Aero Theme, Classic Theme x86, Classic Theme x64) to remove "Organize" bar from Explorer windows. But I also need to know what to modify to remove goddamned "Details" bar, as seen on this screenshot:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. If there is any registry entry I could edit instead of having to modify files directly, it would be even better.

No inconvenience, you solved your own problem.

Might as well share how you did that in case someone else wants to know. :)
