If you are on XP, right click on the start button and go to Open - Programs/Startup and remove the Desktop Manager icon from the startup folder. When you install the Desktop Manager, part of the install near the end asks you if you want it to start and you have to uncheck this option so that it does not start. By removing this from Startup folder, you will no longer have this issue.

The process above that outlines how to do this on XP will not work the same way on Vista. Since I do not have Vista I can't walk you through this but I can tell you how to remove it from the start folder.
This is a snip from another web site:
There are many programs which load up in the startup of the Windows, however there are times when we realize that we don’t need all those softwares loading up in the startup because not only they make the windows boot up slow but also waste valuable amount of RAM.
In order to control these programs we can follow these tips and we can disable these programs from loading up in the startup :
1. Click on Start Menu.
2. Open up Control Panel.
3. On the top search box, type Startup.
4. Open up the Windows Defender Icon, which says “Stop a program from running at startup��?.
You’ll see the list of programs which load in the startup. From that screen you can manage that which software you want to allow and the ones which you want to disable or remove. Once you disable or remove the program, it won’t load up in the startup.
This should get you were you can control the applictions in startup.
Let us know how your doing..
