    You could use something like this, in a file which ends in .reg and launch this from a login script:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    Open in new window

    This will change the start mode to Disable (4 = Disabled)

    I'm sure there are some far more eloquent ways to accomplish this, but this should get you started and maybe someone else here can literate on this further.
