Disabling Process on Startup

So I have a process that begins on startup that I cannot figure out how to disable. The process is ABITEQ.exe and from what I can gather from Google, it's a monitoring utility for my mobo. I've tried MS config, and even downloaded Process Hacker and looked at the properties of it there and am not seeing anything to disable at startup. I'm assuming I'll have to go into the registry to disable it, but I'm not sure where to look.

Any suggestions? The only reason this is a problem is because it really bogs down my system.

Thanks,
Geof

You can try CCleaner, I know it has an option to disable startup items, not sure if it would show up on there or not.

services.msc!! That's the other thing I was trying to think of! Thank you!

Edit: it's not listed in services.msc either.

Edit edit: Found and fixed.
