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?

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.
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".
