dont know if it helps but you can work around it in a laptop using the touchpad buttons.
maybe if it's a microsoft mouse you can use the intellipont software (if it's supported) and change some button configurations. i use it and i dont think there's a way around the scrolling feature but you might have luck with the middle click side of it.
