When you do this:

checkedListBox.Enable = false;
It also disables the scrollbar.

I am wondering if there is an easy way to enable scrolling when the checkedListBox is disabled.
My main purpose of doing checkedListBox.Enable = false, is so the user can not currently
check/uncheck items.

You can set  checkedListBox1.SelectionMode = SelectionMode.None; to disable selection while scrolling is still enabled.

You could also change the BG colour (if you wished)  to make it look disabled...

another way is to manage the checklistbox's ItemCheck event, like this:

private void CheckedListBox1_ItemCheck(Object sender, ItemCheckEventArgs e)
{
     e.NewValue = e.CurrentValue;
}

i don't see how this enables scrolling while the checklistbox.Enable feature is set to false.

You need to set checklistbox.Enabled = true then checkedListBox.SelectionMode = SelectionMode.None disables selection while the scroll bar is still active.
