One of the first things I did after installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was get rid of the dynamic overlay scrollbars, I'm definitely not a fan of them! You can get rid of them in a couple of ways.
First option is to update the GNOME preference by running the following command in a terminal window:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface ubuntu-overlay-scrollbars false
Or you can remove the overlay libraries themselves again using a terminal window:
sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar liboverlay-scrollbar-0.2-0 liboverlay-scrollbar3-0.2-0
