You need to freeze "Voice Command",
if you don't know how go to This thread right here.

its quite easy, but it needs root.

Not that i know of, sorry. but i hated it before i froze it, i think it's a good enough reason to root - the whole process of rooting and freezing, if you do it very slowly and carefully, shouldn't take more than 10 mins i think. and its pretty easy.

but there might be a different way :P

You may need to root for removing Vlingo, but there is a way to turn off the stupid message.

1 goto Vlingo home screen (Voice talk screen)
2 Press menu button
3. Turn OFF Settings->Voice Talk Settings->Speak Prompts

This won't stop Stupid Vlingo from coming up accidentally, but atleast it won't hav e aloud voice message saying something annoying. Samsung has promised a fix to turn off Vlingo all together, lets hope they do it soon.

Assuming you're using ICS, a solution (which does not require a root) is shown about half way down this thread:

Default Go Lanucher ex, dissable voice command

I found an easy solution that doesn't require a root. Install some launcher, as Go Launcher ex. Then in the list of your menu you see the voice command. Hold your finger on it and then choose the x and then uninstall.

You can find the instructions here

Samsung is giving poor support for such an expensive phone. Thankfully one can find good tips as this one.

Default take over with dummy app

After unsuccessful attempts to root my phone, I updated my galaxy 2 to Android 4.1.2 in order to disable Vlingo... only for it to be replaced with the equivalent by Google, a little bit less ugly but still very loud.

A solution is to use another app that can override the home button double tap launch. An option is 'utter!' from Google Play.

It doesn't block the screen and you can "mute in silent profile" in volume settings, and set silent profile round the clock in Advanced settings/accessibility/quiet times, for ex. set it between 10pm and 9:59pm.

Also don't forget to disable "Shake to wake", "Wave-to-wake", "Wake up phrase" to avoid consuming battery.
