Disabling Magento Module Output

There is the myth that any module can be easily disabled in Magento Admin Panel. Unfortunately, that is not thue. System -> Configuration -> Advanced -> Disable Modules Output only prevents rendering the module's layout

In order to actually disable the module you would need to edit module's .xml file in app/etc/modules/ the following way:
< config>
    < modules>
        < Mage_Captcha>
            < active>false< /active> !-- set this to false -->
            < codePool>core< /codePool>
            < depends>
                < Mage_Customer />
                < Mage_Adminhtml />
            < /depends>
        < /Mage_Captcha>
    < /modules>
< /config>
Have fun!
