uncheck that option
theres also an option below that to only allow logged in users to comment

for existing posts you can edit the post and uncheck the comments allowed checkbox

If all else fails, you can go to each individual post/page to un-check the allow comments, allow trackbacks boxes.

If you want to completely remove the option you can find this code in the single.php, index.php, page.php:
One or all of them will contain this piece of code:
<?php comments_template(); ?>

Open in new window

Just delete that and save the page template and all comment boxes will be gone.
