Disable Skype on Win Vista startup

Can I do it? Cos It's getting obnoxious -vand I suddenly found out that it dials numbers on web pages when I'm looking up theater times for movies. Or, rather, my mother figured it out wilst she was. Her Skype, her computer, my problem to figure out. Let's hear it for the technologically retarded!


Thanks to anyone who can help!

You can stop Skype from starting with you start Windows by click on Tools > Options > General and unchecking Start Skype when I start Windows.
