Option to confirm mouse folder move

Is there an option in Windows XP so that when a user moves an entire folder using the left mouse button, a confirmation will be requested?  Right now, the move is automatic and can be a problem if a user accidentally clicks on the mouse button while moving the mouse.
Entire folders can be moved by accident and the user may not even know because it is so quick.

I know that Windows 98 used to have this option, but I can't find it in XP.

cheers
