"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

By "top tools pane", do you mean the ribbon bar?
Before you generate the MDE, click the Office Button--the large, round button with the Office logo in the top, left of the app. Click Access Option | Current Database and clear the Display Navigation Pane box. Make any other changes you deem necessary and close the db. Reopen the db WHILE holding the [Shift] key. Go to the Database Tools tab and create your MDE.
I think you always get a ribbon bar--the default or one you create. You can minimize it by right-clicking the tab bar and selecting Minimize the Ribbon. If you create one, set it to appear using the same option screen as above.
