How can I swap the trigger and shoulder button functions on my controller?

I have an Xbox 360 controller pad, and Windows 7. I would like to swap the functions of the shoulder and trigger buttons.

For most games I find it a lot more comfortable to use the shoulder buttons for the functions the trigger buttons usually perform. I don't want to open the thing up and adjust it in hardware because some games -- racing games, for example -- use the analogue triggers as actual analogue triggers.
Experimenting with the Pinnacle Game Profiler trial got me half-way there but I couldn't stop it from firing off both actions, a trigger and a shoulder press, when using either button. AutoHotKey is a big blank intimidating canvas.
I should mention it's not actually a 360 pad; it's a Logitech F710
. But the provided remapping software only works with the controller in DirectInput mode, which it seems most modern games don't support.
