Not an expert but merely a fellow user.

\section[toc entry]{}

_might_ do the trick and give "toc entry" in the toc and "" on the page (but 
you'd probably still have the number at the head of the page.

If you don't want the underlays to change that is I seem to recall software 
set-able, but if all else fails overwriting all the files with the same image 
would be a crude work around.

The "Panel macros" section pdfscreen.sty (it used to start at line 570) can 
be edited to change the buttons (or I suppose to remove them altogether).
Would suggest backing up the original before editing    :-)>

Just some quick ideas if you want to get working on it today. You may well 
get a more expert view next week.

Hope it helps,
