'Disabling the signature option in Outlook'

where can i find this option in outlook 2007,2010
There are two ways for you to achieve this:
Use the "disclaimer" element of the Exchange Transport Rules to build an automated signature, which has the possibility of pulling data in from Active Directory sources (such as a first/last name or job title) to make the signatures "dynamic".
Buy into a third-party product
While the former approach is the most cost-effective, as it uses everything you already have, it is not the most flexible. I would strongly recommend the Exclaimer line of products to achieve what you are after in a single package: http://www.exclaimer.com/

I am not sure if there is specific option to "Disable signature"
A way I know is using GPO. You will have to download and import the GPO templates on your domain controller, this will allow you to configure from a central location.
