Windows 7: Remove Check Boxes ???

Remove Check Boxes ???

Hello,
Last night, while going through a very informative troubleshooting thread with some of your knowledgeable members, I came across an option to when something is clicked to pick, it displays a checkmark box. On everything! I've find that I dislike this immensely. To my caprice and chagrin, I've forgotten where to find the option so that I can turn off this feature. Can anyone advise me on the method to remove what I personally consider a distracting thing.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thank all you Gentlemen for your response and your time to help another.
Kirsch, derekimo nailed it!

derekimo,
As noted, you nailed it. Thank you for your experience and knowledge and the right answer. I don't know what possessed me to change it, Ahhhhhh its back to the way it was. Same as it ever was! Talking Heads reference.
Thanks again
