That should be the startup entry right there.....

Most likely it is set to start in msconfig. Start>>Run>>msconfig Once that is open go to the startup tab and look for the IDT Audio Control Panel and uncheck the box for it, you will have to reboot, but that should take care of it.

also, it is a very newer looking audio control panel than I had, almost like I got a new motherboard which I did not. Just a new hard drive and all data transferred.

Check the options for the Audio Control Panel, there may be an option for 'run at startup'. If not, the last place to check would be a registry key, but that would be last resort. Newer looking panel could be result of an upgrade to the software.

Also on the start menu under programs check the startup folder and make sure that this is not listed.

I looked for an option to "run on startup" and found none.
start > programs > startup folder was empty.
