Uncheck options
Admin control panel -> Setup Enhanced search -> Enable similar threads widget

Thank you!

Great module
If you aren't using this, you're doing your users a huge disservice IMO. This helps my users quickly find similar content that they want to add upon. It improves posting, especially on busier communities.
