On Samsung Galaxy S2 (not rooted) everytime I accidently double press the home button, the voice command app comes up.
How can I disable this?

For a non-rooted phone, this is the best I have found:
Now if you double-tap, a short sound will be heard, but you won't hear the "What would you like to do?" anymore.
I have disabled it using App-Freeze on Titanium Backup. This works well, and is entirely reversible, but appears to require both the Pro key (paid) and root.
A possible alternative would be removing it using either the terminal or ADB. The apk in question is /system/app/VoiceToGo.apk (com.vlingo.client.samsung), and my phone hasn't had a problem with it having been disabled. I would recommend backing it up, though, on the off chance.
You can follow the following steps to disable
Voice Command on ICS:
home screengo to
Voice Commandin the
Disableoption appears - select and then
ok. It will not prompt again.
Clear dataand then
ok. The next time you mistakenly double click do not confirm the Samsung Disclaimer but select the back button instead.
Double press the menu key in the S Voice application, go to Settings, and disable starting S Voice via double pressing the home button.
I just upgraded my S2 to ICS and continued facing the same problem.. The solution for the problem is Settings -> Language and Input -> Keyboard and input methods. Make sure Google voice typing is unchecked... Problem solved...
Now I have installed Cyanogenmod 9 and this does not happen anymore. I don't think, this problem can be solved via settings of Samsungs Android version
I don't know about the S2, but I've just discovered that for the Galaxy Note, there's a setting "Launch voice talk" (launch by double-tapping home) that only appears when Vlingo is set as the voice recognition engine. If you choose Google, the option goes away.
Inside the voice command:
On Droid Razr, running ICS, it is under Accessibility, in the system settings menu:
Scroll to the bottom and you should see a double tap home launch field, click it and it will allow you to set it to "none".
