    My windows 7x64 is this step away from being perfect. I have spent a whole day on it and not giving up

    >Windows 7 command bar tweaker removed the bar from aero themes. Problem is i hate the aero theme and cant get it to look like i want. If you use the basic aero theme then this is easiest way

    >So i went and downloaded aero theme that looks like classic theme. Perfect but the bar is back.

    >So i went and modified the custom classicaero theme files with the autohide and border hack. Nothing

    >The steps on this tutorial dont work for me, the files propably are not editing anything.

    >Nothing really hapend until i started editing the Shell32 files on system32 and syswow64. I managed to make the bar go from up to bottom. This would be enough for me if i cant hide it but windows did not like my edits and started to give error messages. The bar went from top to bottom though but had to revert back to the original files from second os

    This thread is pure gold for windows 7 enthusiasts because its the most important step in making windows 7 perfect os. That bar has to go

    Here is what i did if anyone is interested. Im on w7x64 ultimate build 7601.

    READ: I needed to multiboot for this to work so install somekinda usb stick with prebootable environment or second windows to other disk. Also you can take the drive off and take it to other pc when you get to the relevant step

    >Install the take ownership context menu addon
    >Find the shell32.dll files from windows/system32 and windows/syswow64 folders.
    >Copy those two files to your desktop onto their own folders named like: S32 and SW64 so you know where they came from
    >Take ownership of those shell32.dll files, (right click and context menu should pop)
    >Use the resource hacker to open shell32.dll from the S32 folder you made.
    >Search for word: folderbandstyle
    >When you find the word look for word "Top" nearby that folderband line , change that top to "Bottom"
    >Compile and save. Search again and press F3 to move to second find.
    >I received 5 finds and 4 edits to make. One of the findings did not need editing as it had no "Top" anywhere near
    >Repeat for the file in SW64 folder.
    >Note that resource hacker saved the original unedited files as shell32_original so you have something to revert to

    >Restart pc and boot into the prebootable windows or your second os or take the harddrive to other computer
    >Explore the filesystem of your windows 7 os you wanted to edit
    >Take the shell.32 files from your S32 and S64 folders and copy them over to their places on windows/system32 and windows/syswow64
    >Reboot now to your windows 7 and the bar has moved to bottom. You made it

    Its easier to boot into second os to copy because you never know how windows is protecting those files
