    For anyone who may Google how to disable a user account (which I sure did) and stumbles upon this, all the existing solutions out there were over complicated or poorly written.

    I wrote a very simple plugin with no thrills or setting that only lets you do just that: http://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-users/

    Change the account email to something else. Change the password. – Done! So simple!

    No need to download, install, etc. extra plugins.

    Good plugin.

    Another way would be to change their role to subscriber.
