Do you really mean the scrollbar, the vertical one that is on the
right or left of a buffer's display (called ``a window'', btw)?  Or do
you mean the horizontal separator between windows, the one below the
displayed text, where you see the buffer's name, the current line
number, etc.?

For the former: (scroll-bar-mode -1) will turn off scroll bars.

For the latter: no, you cannot disable it, nor make it a single thin
line.  About the only thing I know of that can help you is to
customize the `mode-line' face to use a smaller font.
