Apps starting at Boot Up

I have Windows98.  At start-up Real Player gets booted into memory.  By that I mean, it appears on the right side of the task bar.  It isn't in the start up menu or the autoexec file, where else can it be?  I don't want to delete the program completely, just from booting up at start up.  Please help.
Thanks,
Jim

Two options.  One is to click on the RA icon in the tray, and de-select the option to enable RA at startup.
The second way is to do this:
Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Info
Select Tools from the menu of the SysInfo program, and pick system configuration utility.
Click on the start-up tab, and scroll down until you see the RA startup up, then uncheck the box...
voila, no more RA at start-up

Easier yet,
  Start > Run > type in MSCONFIG.EXE
From the start-up tab you can eliminate many of the UNnecessary memory hogs.
Remember, think LEAN.
