I like to use a child-theme.

The parent functions.php

function starkers_widgets_init() {
// Area 1, located at the top of the sidebar.
register_sidebar( array(
    'name' => __( 'Primary Widget Area', 'starkers' ),
    'id' => 'primary-widget-area',
    'description' => __( 'The primary widget area', 'starkers' ),
    'before_widget' => '<li>',
    'after_widget' => '</li>',
    'before_title' => '<h3>',
    'after_title' => '</h3>',
) );

// Area 2 ...

My child-theme functions.php

function xtreme_unregister_sidebar() {
    add_action( 'childtheme_sidebars', 'xtreme_unregister_sidebar' );

But doesn´t work for.

Check the code bellow, I think that should work.

add_action( ‘after_setup_theme’, ‘remove_default_sidebars’, 11 );
function remove_default_sidebars(){
remove_action( ‘widgets_init’, ‘starkers_widgets_init’ );

I just edit the quotes // Remove all widgets from Starkers-Theme add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'remove_default_sidebars', 11 ); function remove_default_sidebars(){ remove_action( 'widgets_init', 'starkers_widgets_init' ); } –  ogni Apr 22 '12 at 17:22
