If you're a really sophisticated programmer you might.

What am I suppose to do with that answer? Does this mean it's complicated?

He meant NO, but did not want some programmer who had written a shell to
block that out to jump in and say he was wrong.

Why do you want it removed? aesthetics? just wondering...I happened to put a
picture on that has white in the area, so it does not show up well

Joe, I'm saying I think it's pretty hard to override it.

Maybe I'm a little too picky. It just does not fit with the background, yup:
aesthetics.

The response to this question in one of the Vista shell user chats was 'no.'

I seem to remember back in the Windows XP days there was a registry key for
it. But it wouldn't surprise me if it was coded in a bit harder this time
around.

Yes there is a registry key that toggles the version info on XP. An easy
way to access it is through a program like Fresh UI from Fresh Devices.
There are many others.
