    Disabling extra mouse buttons

    We've got loads of Dell mice with extra buttons on the side which navigate forwards and backwards in Internet Explorer. Unfortunately these wreak havoc in certain online tests - yesterday a class was repeatedly told not to press them, and still twelve of them did. They're stupidly positioned.

    Anyway, anyone know how to disable them?

    Dont know if this will help at all but my Logitech ones come with Setpoint which allows me to switch off buttons etc. I guess that you must have similar software available for Dell mice.
