How do I disable a program from starting at boot?

Hello,

I've been messing around a bit with my Windows 7 and while doing that I disconnected my keyboard and then I enabled On Screen Keyboard, now I'm curious on how I'm supposed to disable it?

It is not there when I type in my password but once passed that it pops up out of nowhere, I've checked the ease of access button before login in and it is unchecked "type with keyboard on screen". I also thought about checking msconfig if it had been enabled through there but no cannot find any program related.

Have I forgotten checking something, is it something really simple?
