How to disable the back and forward mouse buttons in Windows 7?

How to disable the back and forward mouse buttons in Windows 7?

I have a 5 button Microsoft mouse. I always press acidentally the navigation buttons, and I want to disable them without using the software that came with the mouse. Is it possible? (Without modifying the hardware?)

"You could try using AutoHotKey, but 5 button mice aren't always consistent. If yours IS, try:

XButton1::
XButton2::
Return

Which should disable both. You could give either functionality you actually find useful with the software, as well."
