Listview control

Hi Experts..

I want to know if there is any way that you can prevent a listbox row (without disabling it) from becoming editable.  It's been a navigation issue for the users of my applications that when they click on a row in a listview control, the item becomes editable, when all that they want to do is to select it.  I think it happens when the focus lingers on the row after a Mouse Click; also when they attempt to double-click the row, and the double-click wasn't a quick double-click.  My users are not so computer savyy and so they struggle with mouse.  If there is anyway that when they click a row, it just stay highlighted instead of allowing them to edit the item.

Thanks very much.  I hope I was clear with my problem description.
