Default Extra Mouse buttons

This question is either very simple, or possible way more difficult than it seems at first.

Basically I have a 5 button mouse, buttons 4 and 5 are mapped in the driver software to windows mouse button 4 and 5. This is good, I want this to be the case, however, I don't want windows (windows 7) to do anything when these buttons are pressed as I have them mapped to PTT in mumble, by default in windows they are forward and back functions.

How do I get windows to ignore these mouse buttons without disabling or changing the function of the mouse button in the driver (so they still work in mumble)?

Edit: nevermind, I can achieve this with a program called "X Mouse Button Control". Mod feel free to delete the thread, I'm done.
