Windows 7: How do I turn off "Smart Text Selection" in Internet Explorer 9

How do I turn off "Smart Text Selection" in Internet Explorer 9

I was forced to use IE9 this evening.

I discovered that it was impossible to select the text in a text box, without the Word-style "Smart Text Selection" getting in my way.
I was forced to use "Shift + Arrow Keys" to select what I wanted.

Does anyone know how to disable this useless, frustrating, automatic function (I always disable it in Word)?

D'oh!
I forgot to add tags.
