I am also opposed to emacs messing with the Windows
Clipboard every time I put something on the emacs kill
ring.  But this is all I do about it:

;; Disable routine Windows clipboard action and bind 
;; S-insert and C-insert to explicit clipboard actions.
(setq x-select-enable-clipboard nil)
(global-set-key [S-insert]      'clipboard-yank)
(global-set-key [C-insert]      'clipboard-kill-ring-save)
