A cheating way could be to set your scroll bar colours.
<style type="text/css">
body {
  background-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-face-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-shadow-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-highlight-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-3dlight-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-track-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-arrow-color:#ffffff;
}
</style>

Hi dij8
Actually I am trying to make unvisible only right-left scroll bar. Your code quite good but it's making unvisible both scroll bars. Can you make on this sample little changes that will make right-left scroll bar unvisible ?

Hi php-webdesigne
Where should I paste this code(overflow:none) ?
I have already pasted it into dij8's code. But it doesn't gave me anything. Something like that:

body {
  background-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-face-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-shadow-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-highlight-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-3dlight-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-track-color:#ffffff;
  scrollbar-arrow-color:#ffffff;
  overflow:none
}

Where is mistake ?

You can't colour only one set of scrollbars.

As an IE only fix you could try in your style sheet:
body {
  overflow-y:auto;
  overflow-x:hidden;
}

dij8 has a clever idea, works in IE only though. You can use another method, but this is only for a div, it does not seem to work on the body.  ..also IE only (view source for code)

Here it seen with an image for the background of the scrollbars (view source for code)

It is an interesting exercise, but reduced the accessibility for your users, in my opinion.
