The fileservlet is just a servlet like any other, to disable just open up the WebSphere Administrators Console, go to the web app you are interested in. Under it's servlet you will see a filservlet registered just delete it and restart the web app.
There is no impact at all except you can't retrieve files from that web app i.e. html, gif's etc...
