Type services.msc in the start search box. Click on the icon then look in services to see if these programs are set to automatic startup. You can stop them, then set them to manual by right clicking on properties. Select from the dropdown bar.

Do you know what the directory of "C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local" is?
