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.

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.
