On Windows, it "runs in the system tray", as do MSN Messenger, and 
Skype.  You need to stop it from the system tray icon, before you can 
remove it, as Windows won't let you remove a running program.

There may also be ways of getting Windows to start without auto-starting 
applications.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
