I need help with customizing my Internet Explorer.

Problem number 1, here is how the top of my internet explorer looks like right now.

Is there anyway I save some space and make it look something like this (pardon my photo editing skills, I use Windows Paint :) )

Problem number 2, how do I disable internet explorer bring down drop suggestions when I type something in the address bar or search engine. Here is what I am talking about. See when I type in tomshardware in the address bar, it gives me suggested website and the history. Is there a way i can disable that so it does not give me any suggestions, only show what I type in the bar and nothing else. I thought disabled several options that might do this, but turns out those options had nothing to do with this problem.

Problem number 3, when I open multiple tabs, Windows 7 shows that I have multiple windows open for that program, when it is really just tabs.

For example, if I have 3 tabs open, my internet explorer on my taskbar looks like this:

is there a way I can just make it look like this regardless of how many tabs I have open (it used to do this by default on firefox and google crome):

Problem number 4, no spell check in internet explorer, as you can probably notice in this post :) 

EDIT: I am using the most up to date internet explorer.

EDIT: I found a solution to problem 4, and I fixed problem 2.

Still trying to figure out problem 1 and 3 now.

Can't change the windows size without a skinner, but I don't think even those will reduce the size of the border, just change the colors.

For the icon thing, look at the last post here

Thank man, found the setting to fix my icon issue.

I can live with the over-sized border. :)
