stopping unwanted launching of a program

A program that I have installed in Win7 Ultimate, offers the tickable option to launch with windows; When I leave that unticked, it STILL launches automatically ! There is NO tickable option for it in the StartUp tab of MSConfig. How can I prevent it from launching ?

He doesn't desire to uninstall, but rather simply not run at startup time.

Am awaiting a couple of files which will tell me how to solve the problem.

Have a look to see if the program executable is mentioned in either or both of the following registry locations:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Sebastian,
Before we go messing around in the registry, let us let Microsoft do the work for us.

Post up the requested files.

Unless this is an unusual program, you are probably only one uncheck mark away from eliminating your problem.

Sebastian,

Your problem interested me.

I download and installed Capture Text from capturetext.com.

You should have a blue icon in the right-hand side of the main screen taskbar (the "notification area")

Right-click on that icon, choose Settings, is the box about launching at startup time unchecked?
If not,then uncheck.

Here is a capture of that settings screen made using the Win 7 Snipping tool.
