Usually by finding it and stopping it from starting.

You didn't reveal any detail about the program so here's the tool I use to find ALL programs and services that autorun when I start Windows.

It's a shame more detail was not available since this tool may be like a sip from a fire hose.

Thanks for responding but I didn't mention it because I don't know what program is because I can only see the outline of the program. It is just the outline and the rest is transparent because I can see the wallpaper

You may want to check what's running in Task Manage. Less work if it's there.
