On what exact input device? Can you be more specific in that regard? Is it the built in trackpad, an external trackpad, any external or specific mouse?

I was referring to my mouse. I found the program USB Overdrive, which can do it.

To what end? What are you trying to achieve? There's a lot of useful functionality in right-clicking stuff, so it might be possible to maintain that ability while still addressing your concern.
