Prevent Programs from Loading at Startup
Or this way:
Go to Start/Run and type in MSCONFIG in the run box and hit enter. This will open the Microsoft Configuration Utility. From there, click on the Start Up tab. You will be presented with a list of all the programs and processes that are starting every time you start your computer.
Carefully look for any references that are causing the files in question to open. If you find any, just uncheck the box next to the reference.
I would suggest backing up any important data and making a Restore point prior to any changes:
Go to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools, and click on System Restore.
When the program opens, create a restore point and name it whatever you like. In case anything happens you can always restore the system based on this restore point you just created.
Hope this helps.

I did forget to mention that you will have to reboot for the changes to take effect. The msconfig utility will inform you of this anyway. The box that pops up notifying you that you made changes to start up needs to have the little box checked and then you can close that window. It shouldn't appear until you make other changes again.
