Do you mean Name, Birthday, etc?

This is pulled from the ICQ server, AFAIK. To disable it, you'd need 
to disable it / delete it from ICQ's website. Log into www.icq.com , 
go to My Page, and change the information.  But I don't see a way to 
disable it (I think that would defeat the 'purpose' of ICQ...)
