Seriously man your advice sometimes is really asinine. In today's machines disabling services is completely useless and just a waste of time for people to do. If you are someone who wants to completely tweak every last inch of your machine then fine but again the results will be so minimal its not gonna make any difference.

Just leave things be and don't think everything has to be touched.

If it is windows 7, click the arrow at the bottom, then customize, then find your program in the box (as shown) then finally change it to hide icon and notifications.

I am unsure about vista

Were not talking about hiding icons, were talking about making them not run at all.

I disabled a couple things.

If the notification is what is causing the minimization, then if you make it not able to notify you, then it won't minimize.....

I look through all the settings, I can't find anything.

This is all it gives me.

As a stopgap you could always just kill the process before you start a game, I have had random programs that needed that to run certain games.
