HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run

There is also a matching key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but it's fairly empty.

If you don't like to get "down-and-dirty" with your registry, let me recommend Start->Run->"msconfig"->Startup. It allows limited editing of the aforementioned registry keys, namely, moving string values to and from a temporary key representing disabled startup items.

The disadvantage is that it edits Run, RunServices, and Start->Programs->StartUp as one unit, making it impossible to tell one from the other. Then again, it may be seen as an advantage, as you can search for whatever you want remove in all of these at the same time, without having to think too hard about in which one it should be.

To disable Task Scheduler, right-click its icon, choose Open, click Advanced and then click Stop using Task Scheduler. It will not bother you anymore.
