temp disabling mouse wheel, how?

I'm trying in vain to disable my mouse wheel for a game which has a unchangeable command from the mouse wheel[engine speed up/down].

Now I have keys set for those commands but when using the middle mouse button the wheel slips occasionally and throws the fine control out by a sudden change in engine speed.

So does anyone know of a utility that can kill the mouse wheel temporarily, as I have tried via the mouse applet and via hardware manager but still can't.

When you say "mouse applet" do you mean this is a program you installed from the manufacturer of your mouse? I've found with most wheel mice you can disable it through that kind of program.

Thats why I'm asking for a 3rd party utility, as the applet doesn't have that option only to disable the middle button but not the wheel.

Nor setting the no wheel check on boot, kills it via the hardware manager in windows. To think of the years with other mice I tried to get the wheel to work all the time and now when I don't want it working and can't disable it.
