Hmmm..... ok, someone else will hopefully add a reply here, someone that understands better than I do what your problem is. 

This may be 'redundant' in that you have tried this... but I can't be sure so I'll include everything.  I'm not sure if you want to delete the application or leave it and just remove it from starting up at start up.

SKIP THIS IF YOU WANT TO KEEP THE APPLICATION - To delete an application, (remove it from your computer if you want to) you simply drag the Application... (not the disk image or an alias)... to the Trash.

To check 'Start Up' applications it's SYSTEM PREFERENCES - ACCOUNTS.. choose your ADMIN account... you will see a tab called "LOGIN ITEM"... (yes, I think this is what you've done by reading your question but I'm just making sure)...

See if the application is listed.  (Which I think you're saying IT IS)

Click the application in the LOGIN ITEMS, (to choose it and then make sure none of the other listed items are clicked) and then click the "-" key at the bottom of the window. 

If none of this works  - What is the application? - JamesJM

James, Thank you. Sorted. As always there is a simple solution - usually so simple I can't figure it out Cheesy
