Windows 7: Full screen switching

Full screen switching

So long story short, I have a triple monitor setup, crossfire, and Don't want to use eyefinity as i want a game client up on each monitor sized properly. Crossfire does not kick in on windowed applications, it needs to be full screen.

I can full screen a client on a particular monitor, but if I mouse over and click on anything else, it automatically minimizes the full screen app. Is there a way to disable the automatic Minimization.

The Game is Eve Online. Dxdiag list below.
