What Theme are you using? – Chip Bennett May 23 '12 at 21:36
Ah, I see: Advanced Newspaper, from Gabfire Themes. As this is a commercial Theme, you should consult the support offerings of the Theme developer for Theme-specific support. – Chip Bennett May 23 '12 at 21:37

Looking at your site, then looking at the live demo of the theme ... and that archive section isn't hard-coded into the theme by default.

This potentially means one of two things:

  1. You or someone managing your site added it
  2. The archive widget is the "default" widget for some section and you haven't put anything else there yet.

If you added the widget

Just go into Appearance » Widgets and remove it.

If it's the default

Go into Appearance » Widgets and add an empty text widget to the empty widget container. This should dump "nothing" into the widget area and prevent the defaults from firing up.
