I've never heard of a way to disable it. Maybe if PICKFIRST is off.

To release an entity, you must let go of the button while over the entity,
if you move the mouse while you are still clicked, the program sees that as
a drag and, well, it does just that. Turn off Pickfirst, or explain your
mouse driver, video card and driver, and Windows variant and let's see if
others with your setup can replicate.
This is Windows functionality. Left Pick and Drag moves an object,
Right-Pick and Drag gives the option to Move or Copy. Give it a try in other
Windows applications or even the Windows desktop.

I don't think my 2011 is working as you describe..........
I click once to select object ( Grips are displayed) just holding the left mouse
button down does not let me drag it.
If while the grips are displayed, but not clicking them, I click and hold on any
part of the object........I can then drag the object.
My PICKFIRST is set to ( 2 ).
