How to turn off the visual effects on the lines when the curser rolls over them

I want to use Autocad version 2009, I have everything set back to the classic format. The only thing I  can't figure out is How to turn off the visual effects on the lines or other objects when the curser rolls over them. I went to selection-visual effect settings-selection preview effect and there is no way to turn off the lighting up effect on the objects. Advanced options offer nothing I need either. Please help, I want to use AutoCad 2009, but this feature is not helpful and I hope there is a way to turn it off.

 

Thanks

I figured out one way to turn off the effects problem I was having; that is go to options-selection-selection preview and remove the checkmark from the when no command is active prompt

There is a system variable that controls it, but the name escapes me. SelectionPreview mebbe...

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:
