    Just kill the process, find the file on your PC, delete it, and delete it from the registry.

    it tells you i my link above but here it is again

    In Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 you will also need to edit the following registry entry. The removal of this entry is optional in Windows 95/98/Me. Please read the warning about editing the registry.

    At the taskbar, click Start|Run. Type 'Regedit' and press Return. The registry editor opens.

    Before you edit the registry, you should make a backup. On the 'Registry' menu, click 'Export Registry File'. In the 'Export range' panel, click 'All', then save your registry as Backup.

    Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entry:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    and remove any reference to any file you deleted.

    Close the registry editor.
