How to stop autostart of SuperAntispyware on user account

Hello to all,
I am not quite sure how I did it, but I have SuperAntispyware (free) that starts up and runs with my user account. I do not wish it to, it doesn't on my Admin account and I can't figure out how to make it stop. Can anyone please advise me on a possible solution? Thanks in advance!

Open msconfig (Click Start and in the search type 'msconfig' or press Windows Key + R). Click the Startup Tab and deselect SuperAntiSpyware.

The best way is to type services.msc, click on the icon, then scroll down to SAS core service, right click ( choose) properties and set it to 'manual' start up.

Using CCleaner and other programs, it doesn't not allow changes as it is not an administrator account. Will experiment with you help!! Thanx

Well, that was strange. I did the services.msc as admin. Stopped the service and changed the properties to manual. When I rebooted, it came right back up again.
Just did the easy thing and revo uninstalled it and reinstalled it and stopped it from starting with windows. Seems to be staying off. Strange that it never auto-started in the admin user. Thanks for all the responses!
