Turning off YourKit Java Profiler ?

I don't plan to use YourKit Java Profiler (even if it's very good).
Is there any way to remove it from IDEA 6.0.3 ? By default IDEA starts with support for it.

Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

Do you have a plugin installed or something? I don't have YourKit in my list of default plugins.

That's the point - I cannot turn it off, because it's not listed in plug-ins section.

1) By default EAP versions are started with YourKit enabled on the Idea
process itself (to allow on-the-fly CPU profiling and memory
snapshotting). It doesn't have any overhead, but if you really, really
want to turn it off you can edit your idea.vmoptions (or
idea.exe.vmoptions under Windows) to not have -agentlib:yjpagent
2) If you use YourKit for your processes, you will have the plugin
listed in the plugins section (and it is installed by default in
/.IntelliJ60/config/plugins

The profiler is enabled in EAP builds in order to make it easier for you
to take CPU or memory snapshots if you encounter some performance problems.
It's not there for you to use in your projects.

To remove it, delete the line "-agentlib:yjpagent" from the idea.exe.vmoptions
file.
