Right click an empty area on the desktop and choose properties (or click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and open Display). Click the Web tab. Uncheck the "View my Active Desktop as a web page" box and Apply.

Before proposed answers allow you to disable only A.D.
Do you want to hide it forever?

So, open Registry Editor and then go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Create String parameters:
NoActiveDesktop - HIDE FOREVER EVEN menuitem
NoActiveDesktopChanges - to disable options' saving for ActiveDesktop - if you don't want someone to change your A.D. settings.
NoSetActiveDesktop - to disable ability to enable A.D.

as a value of all these parameters set string "1"
