If not, is anyone aware of any software that could accomplish this task?

Assuming your friend has Windows 7. Right click on your desktop. Click on "Personalize", "Change mouse pointers". Select the "Buttons" tab and at the bottom of the dialog box check "Turn on ClickLock". Click on Apply and Ok. This will work throughout all Windows programs.

I'm glad to hear that it worked out for your friend. It would be nice if this feature was built into Paint.net so that, like you mentioned above, it could be turned on or off at will as sometimes I would rather have the feature turned off, especially while surfing the net.

This will not be added as a built-in capability of Paint.NET since the OS already handles it. It would simply be a very poor use of time to implement something that's already available. A useful and practical solution* would be to find or write a utility which makes it more convenient to enable or disable it, or that automatically did that based on what application was active. I wonder if one already exists? I suppose it would depend on if it's possible to toggle click-lock programmatically (that is, via code and not just through the control panel).
* and especially, a solution that wouldn't take up time which I need for work on 4.0
