Can you post a screen capture of what you mean? I only see two areas when I look at a folder.
The left side is the Navigation pane which you can get rid of by clicking Organize, Layout, and uncheck Navigation Pane.

I don't know what you mean by "that one at bottom" as I don't have one at the bottom.

Again, for icons, please post a screen capture. Where do you see the text icon? Examples please.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

The text icon is in the imageres.dll in icon folder, #s 19 and maybe 102.
In both C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64
