Default Cant stop MS portfolio from starting

I cant seem to stop works portfolio from starting every time I restart my computer. The little grey box always pops up after restarts and I am suposedly supposed to be able to click task then click options and then uncheck the "start when windows starts" box but amazingly there is NO option to click that box because its not there... all the other options are there but mysteriously that one is missing... Can someone please tell me how to get this to stop poping up after restarts??

Try Disabling it in msconfig.

Start<run<msconfig

On startup tab, uncheck anything you don't want starting up on boot.
