You can use the Toolbar Manager from here:

It gives you granular control of all of the SharePoint Toolbar per list.

The ideal solution would be to disable it using a SharePoint Feature with a HideCustomAction element. But I tried this a few years back with no luck - hiding this action was not possible this way. We ended up patching the core.js file to get rid of it. But beware that this is an ugly work-around that service packs and CU's might overwrite again. I have not tried the HideCustomAction with SP2 - maybe it is possible now to do it right?
