You can change the native Windows Media keys some with Tweak UI from Microsoft. Or, you can use KeyTweak or SharpKeys to remap them to some other key, or use AutoHotkey to have them run macros.

Re: How do I disable the hotkeys on keyboard

I've tried a few of those and none of them register the media buttons. I just need to disable them completely not reassign them. I have the logitech Itouch software installed and all that does is allow me to reassign what media player launches when I press the button I was hoping it would have a simple disable feature.

Do those keys work if you uninstall iTouch? If they don't, you've got a solution. If they do, re-try using the above utils to set them to do something trivial.
