If you wanted to keep the minimize button but disable the others add this to your code:
Protected Overrides ReadOnly Property CreateParams() As CreateParams
            Dim cp As CreateParams = MyBase.CreateParams
            Const CS_DBLCLKS As Int32 = &H8
            Const CS_NOCLOSE As Int32 = &H200
            cp.ClassStyle = CS_DBLCLKS Or CS_NOCLOSE
            Return cp
        End Get
    End Property
