Check the files in C:\ 'autoexec.bat & Config.sys' and in C:\Windows 'Win.ini & System.ini' . In one of those files, I suspect Win.ini, will be a line refering to the offending program. It would be worth getting RegClean to tidy up the registry.

Make a copy of any file you edit (under a new name or in a different directory) BEFORE you make any changes. In this way if, for any reason you finish up worse off afterwards you can easily backtrack.
