The easiest way to remove any link from the My Account panel in Magento is to first copy:
Open the file and fine this line, it should be around line 34:
<?php $_index = 1; ?>
Right below it add this:
<?php $_count = count($_links); /* Add or Remove Account Left Navigation Links Here -*/ unset($_links['tags']); /* My Tags */ unset($_links['invitations']); /* My Invitations */ unset($_links['enterprise_customerbalance']); /* Store Credit */ unset($_links['OAuth Customer Tokens']); /* My Applications */ unset($_links['enterprise_reward']); /* Reward Points */ unset($_links['giftregistry']); /* Gift Registry */ unset($_links['downloadable_products']); /* My Downloadable Products */ unset($_links['recurring_profiles']); /* Recurring Profiles */ unset($_links['billing_agreements']); /* Billing Agreements */ unset($_links['enterprise_giftcardaccount']); /* Gift Card Link */ unset($_links['reviews']); /* my product Reviews */ ?>
Just remove any of the links here that you DO want to appear.
You can also disable the menu items through the backend, without having to touch any code. Go into:
System > Configuration > Advanced
You'll be presented with a long list of options. Here are some of the key modules to set to 'Disabled' :
Mage_Downloadable -> My Downloadable Products Mage_Newsletter -> My Newsletter Mage_Review -> My Reviews Mage_Tag -> My Tags Mage_Wishlist -> My Wishlist
I also disabled Mage_Poll, as it has a tendency to show up in other page templates and can be annoying if you're not using it.
