    You are not the only one who absolutely hates this feature. lol..
    There are a few ways to do this but the one I use is a root method.

    Two things you need:
    1. Root access
    2. Root File Browser <SM manager or Root Browser> both have free versions.

    Browse to this folder:
    /system/app/

    Scroll Down Until you see the file(.apk)
    ScreenCaptureService.apk
    (DELETE) Never get it back!!
    (MOVE to SDCARD) Do this if you are worried it will damage your system.

    Done, no more accidentally trying to back out of a lagging browser accidentally fat fingering the sequence activating the screen capture/picture sound causing those around you to wonder why the hell you "took a picture"

    You will see many files in here, these are your Apps pre-installed on your Charge.
    I have been able to delete many of these apps saving space and not effecting the
    system BUT be very careful I have also played around too much and forged my
    charge to spaz out and force me to re-flash.

    I think there is a list of safe apk you can delete if you do a search.

    Again, this is impossible if you do not have root access.

    Hope this helps.
