We have a SharePoint 2010 implementation and we have disabled 'User Profile'. Now when 'Add a Link' from the menu is selected an error is thrown.

How can we hide the 'Add to My Links' option on the menu?

You can use jQuery if you are comfortable with it. You can find out the item using developer tool bar and then simply disable/hide the item you want from the menu.

SharePoint 2010 does not contain any "Add to my Links" option, did you made any custom solution to add the option in the menu? If yes, simply uninstall/deactivate the custom solution..
