Windows 7: how to disable only one of the automatic arrangement function?

how to disable only one of the automatic arrangement function?

I love the windows auto arrangement function when moved to the edge of the screen, however there is one that is very annoying, that is bottom edge.

I have one of my monitor in portrait mode, and sometimes I want to view two windows, one on the top and the other on the bottom. But I can not cover the all the area down the bottom because once I go near the bottom edge, Windows maximizes it.

Now I know in the "Make the mouse easier to use" page, I can "prevent" it all, but I just want to disable the bottom edge and leave the top, left and right edge as the way they are. How can I do that?

Is there a Win7 setting that will disable Alt+tab function?
Would like to disable this key combo while in games full screen mode. I know this has been an issue for a number of years now, and I'm very surprised that windows hasn't addressed it with some kind of built-in setting option, but I will certainly accept any functioning workaround.
