System File Check - how to stop it starting

I ran the SFC, I think I ran it through the DOS command when trying to prepare for one of the Microsoft exams. The only problem now is, it keeps starting up every time I log into my computer. Where do you go to disable it. Is it MSCONFIG and startup, something to uncheck out of there perhaps or is it living in the registry ?? Can someone please explain this to me.

Check if System File Checker is starting from startup programs.  Go to Start > Run and type msconfig
and hit OK. Go to Startup tab and look for SFC.  Disable it if SFC is starting up.

From Start > Run enter Msinfo32. Open Software then Startup. That
will tell you what's loading and where it starts from.

Start/Run and enter Sysedit.
