look at startup scripts under /etc/rc2.d or /etc/rc3.d

the startup scripts names start with letter S

rename the file to stop it from running at reboot

e.g.

mv S99myapp .S99myapp

Also you can look under /etc/init.d, move the script to somewhere else to disable it starts up.

you should see what's your default run level in startup from /etc/inittab file then goto directory
/etc/rc#.d and rename it to be started with s small letter instead of S capital letter.
