To just remove it from the web page:
remove_action('wp_head', 'wp_generator');

To remove it from everything:
add_filter('the_generator', create_function('', 'return "";'));

To remove it from specific places:
add_filter('get_the_generator_TYPE', create_function('', 'return "";'));

Where "TYPE" is one of these: html, xhtml, atom, rss2, rdf, comment, export.
