You can also remap a key to emulate the Scroll Lock.

You can get more information on this here.

Bay Wolf - Thanks for the link.In addition to your suggested program there is also another nice program available that does the same job as yours but it has a big advantage: It is portable - no installation and no .NET required.Additionally it comes with a nice keyboard interface that lets the user very comfortable remap the keys.

The name of the program : KeyTweak

There are lots of download links I just picked one of them

=======================================================

A far better and more "complicated" solution would be to use AutoHotkey - which does not require Windows to reboot,

but in case of max0073 above mentioned programs should be sufficient.

To toggle Scroll Lock, try using: Fn+S

This works on my Inspiron 15 (5570). It is mentioned in the setup guide found here:
