On my W500 keyboard there are two keys on either side of the up arrow in the lower right corner. Pressing them allows you to navigate forward and back in your browser or in explorer. However, these have to be the worst placed keys possible. Whenever I am typing a message on a website and I want to move around in my text to make some edits, I go to use my arrow keys but occasionally I will hit the back key, thus going back to my previous page and losing all that I was typing. It is extremely frustrating.
Is there a way to disable these key? I have no need for them, they only cause me headaches.

This is exactly what I am looking for!
But I haven't TpKmapAp.exe on my W500 ThinkPad even I have that tools installed: C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities
Is there another way disabling those keys? Also tried the "Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox" (blue ThinkVantage button) but can't find an option for disabling the page-back, page-forward keys ....
Thanks a lot pointing me into the right direction!

Try downloading the Vista version. It's on the Lenovo site http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-67288
It seems to work on Win7 x64
