I have a similar trackball mouse that I use with my laptop. Here I can scroll with the trackball when I hold the left clicker on the laptop down.

It has a "Windows 7 compatible" logo on the page you linked too? Did you try the XP/vista driver?

scrolling with Orbit trackball

One method that seems to work is to activatethe scroll bar in the window where you want use the scrolling feature. I have done this by:
1. select the scroll bar with the left button.
2. while still holding the button down, slide the pointer into the window and make some scrolling motion and release the button. The scroll feature should remain active until you click the button again.

This worked in Explorer and MS Word, xcel
