Try Start>Run>msconfig>Startup. If you can find it listed there you can 
disable it from starting and/or simply delete the executable (might want to 
rename it first). Better free Startup Cop type programs are available e.g. 
Startup Control Panel www.mlin.net .

Then I'd work on how this thing got installed in the first place. Run Ad-aware
  ( http://www.webattack.com/get/adaware.shtml ), update her virus 
definitions and check the settings, and change some of the security 
settings in Internet Options to prompt before allowing programs to install
