How would I disable a plugin on one page?

For example, I have a plugin for Social Icons that appears on all pages, but I would like it NOT to show up on one page.

which plugin is it exactly ? Also, by "page", you mean a Page or a Post ? – mike23 Jun 28 '11 at 7:49
Does this plugin use a shortcode? – MartinJJ Jun 28 '11 at 7:50
as a general strategy if you wish to try.... I tend to read through the code to find the specific function that outputs whatever the plugin does. Often times if you can find that function you can write a conditional into yur template (or header or functions.php) which says to not do the function on certain pages – Rev.

Yes, you can disable specific plugins or scripts form appearing in certain pages.

Here's an example how I disabled the easy fancybox plugin from appearing

Hope it helps :)
