    It is hard coded into Windows explorer. There is no way to remove it except by a hack. Elmers suggestion may be worth a try.

    I believe the "hack" is supposed to work like that (Mouse hover.)

    Edit later. My post here refers to a follow up from the op, which has vanished. The "hack" only worked when the mouse was moved, it seemed.

    I think you have use a third party tool to remove it because in windows there is no default feature to remove it so try any third party tool.
