Windows 7: Skype

Skype

Using Win 7 Professional.

I installed Skype on my laptop last week so that I could participate in a meeting.

Whenever I turn on my laptop, Skype is loaded in the background. Because I do not foresee using Skype on a regular basis, I must manually turn it off by positioning the cursor onto the icon in the tray and click "quit".

Is there a way to stop Skype for automatically being launched?
