Editing some Windows 7 system file questions

Specs: Windows Vista, 4Gb
i'm trying to do a few things that i was able to do under vista, but struggling to find the right dll string in win7.

what i want to do is make the folder background transparent, as well as the border, without having to use windowblinds...i think the file i edited in vista was shellbrd.dll ???

another one is, where do i find the processor information that appears when you right click computer/properties?
i've managed to edit the windows information and manufacturer info in basebrd.dll, but cant find a string that has the processor info on it.

lastly....how do i get rid of the annoying preview window on my taskbar?
already tried disabling aero peek and a few other registry tweaks, but it just wont go away!!!!

if anyone needs any screenies of what i'm trying to do, please ask

thanks

ok, i managed to find the processor info, it was in the registry rather than a dll.

anyone got any ideas on the others?

Sorry no one has answered you.
Like me, I don't think it is possible.
Certainly it is beyond any understanding I have of it, But I believe it is an integral part of windows 7. I find it useful though.
Try Googling under 'Windows 7 preview panes, turning off' and see if anything comes up.

If you are trying to edit Win 7 system files, that may be against EULA. If it is against EULA, no one may want to answer you here in this Forum. It may be against Forum Rules.

This is what I think. I am not an authority in this forum. Therefore, I may well be wrong.
