    Lazy way: Get this: Ultimate Windows Tweaker for Windows 7 and look under tab Additional Tweaks and check the box for Disable Low Disk Space Warnings and save.

    Geek Way:Disable Low Disk Space Notification Alert In Windows 7 / Vista

    :)

    Edit: I just realized:eek:; you wish to turn off the red/green bar, sheez. I'll have to dig out the resource kit. Ain't never had that one pop up in all my reading and playing:confused:. Hopefully someone can answer it easily. Gotta be in the registry somewhere, probably in or around this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. Hmmmm. Good one.:twitch:

    OK, let's apply a little logic here; if, you can make xp icons into vista/Windows 7 style, why not be able to go the other way.

    Some study info, so far.

    Google search.

    Winbubble will change icons, it still left the stat bar.

    How to Change a Library Icon in Windows 7 and this the software (IconViewer) they show to mod the dll.

    Here is some software that changes xp icons to vista/windows 7 style. I know it is the reverse, but it might give some insight into the process. I need to figure out where the reg entres are.

    And, some background:
    Vista Drive Icon – Turn XP drive icon into Vista style!
    Transform Windows XP into Windows 7 without using Customization Pack
    IconPhile: A Freeware to Change System Icons Easily & Quickly
    Vista Drive Icon, changes the drive icons shown in Windows "My Computer", to a nearly Vista drive icon, showing the drive's free space with a smooth colored horizontal bar. At sourceforge Vista Drive Icon by artarmin.

    It is a start; we will figure it out or someone has the answer.
