How to Disable Mouse Wheel?
I've found that users in IE after selecting a dropdown will often use their mouse wheel to scroll down the page. This frequently results in their data being altered without their knowledge.
Thus, I'd like to know if its possible to disable the mouse wheel in a specific dropdown.

But before implementing this, consider the usability issues this might inflict. When you take away a trusted UI feature that users might rely on, your audience could get confused or frustrated.
Just keep this in mind

Even if it's possible, it's a wrong forum. It's a client side issue, so you should be looking for js.Saul

I realize that any time you disable something you are asking for trouble, and that was my same concern when asked to do this by clients that use the form, but in this case I don't think it'll be an issue.
Well in case this thread makes its way to the JS forum, here's the solution I decided to use.
onmousewheel="window.focus(); return false;"
