I saved the following from a Sept. 2004 post when I first purchased my 3790. I followed the directions and got the two buttons disabled. Kept the internet connect button connected. Hope this helps.

3790: Disabling WWW and E-mail Button
For all those people who hate the buttons 'cause it's in a very easily bumped location...
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Copy and paste that into Notepad, save it as DisableButtons.reg.
Then click on Start | Run, and run regedit.
In there, click on File | Import... and select the DisableButtons.reg created above.
Then drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout and verify on the right hand side that the value was imported correctly.
If the import failed, what you can do is manually input the values:
Drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout.
Then, on the right hand side, right-click and click on New | Binary Value.
Name the value Scancode Map.
Double click the value to open up the binary editor.
Type in the values so they look like the following:
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
03 00 00 00 00 00 32 E0
00 00 6C E0 00 00 00 00
(Each line should have 8 number pairs. And they're all zeros, not O's.)
Now, after importing or inputting the values, close Regedit, and then reboot the laptop.
The buttons should now be disabled!
If you ever want to re-enable the buttons, go back into Regedit, then drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout and delete the Scancode Map value on the right hand side.
Unfortunately, we still haven't figured out a way to disable the wireless button. At least not yet (we hope)!
Many thanks to John for being the guinea pig, since I don't have a 3790.
