I have disabled trackbacks in Wordpress back end discussion panel but I am still receiving trackbacks. How can I ensure that I do not receive any trackbacks?

Changing the global Trackbacks setting via Dashboard -> Settings -> Discussion will only change the default behavior. If you currently have existing posts/pages with trackbacks enabled, changing the default setting will not change the per-post setting.

You will need to go to Dashboard -> Posts, select all posts, and batch-edit them to disable trackbacks. (Then repeat with Pages.)
