Hello, this may be what you are looking for as we don't have much info to go on.

Customize the Start menu

Perhaps,unistalling and re installing.. When you re install. Look for "add to Start up menu" and Do not select it.

So, its not an infection so that good.
If Vista
Stop a program from running automatically when Windows starts

1.Open Windows Defender by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Defender.

2.Click the Tools button, and then click Software Explorer.

3.In the Category box, click Startup Programs.

4.Select the program (spotify) that you want to prevent from running, and then click Disable.

5.Click Yes to confirm that you want to stop that program from running.

6.Repeat steps 4 and 5 for every program you want stop from running.


If not Vista ask how in that forum up top.
