Thanks!

Check your startup folder under All Programs and delete the shortcut to VMWare Workstation. If its not there

open msconfig and select the startup tab, find it and uncheck it, apply, then restart.

Set the VMware Workstation services to MANUAL.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

The actual Workstation should not start if no guests are running. And for safety, you should shut down machines before shutting down the host.

You can also shut off the Tray Icon in Workstation, Edit Preferences, Workspace, change tray to "whenever a machine is powered on".

Duh.  I checked Startup first, didn't find it, then went to the Registry and checked HKLM-Software-Microsoft-Current Version-Run, and didn't see it there either.  Didn't even check msconfig!

Must be on a brain vacation today...

Thanks to all.  Haven't rebooted yet, but if that doesn't do it (it should) I'll change the services to manual.
