How to disable IDT Audio Control Panel?

Specs: Windows 7
I have been using the IDT High Def Audio Codec for a year now, and the audio has always sounded great. However after I reformatted my computer I noticed that "IDT control panel" is popping up automatically. From what i've gathered so far it has a negative effect on audio as it seems to generate extra bass and static noises. I've messed around with the settings such as turning off Dolby Effects but it doesn't change anything. I've figured out how to disable the control panel on windows 7 by going to Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > IDT High Definition Audio Codec > Disable. After that I have to restart my computer, go back into Device Manager and enable it, and the control panel won't open. I want to know if there is an easier way of doing it, because if I want to shut down my computer I have to disable the idt codec every time or else the control panel will start up when I turn the computer back on.

Computer specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_gdr.120830-0334)

Thanks for any help.

Have a look in your Startup items (those items that start everytime Windows starts) and you'll very likely find IDT is in there. The easiest way too see and control all your startup items is with Ccleaner: http://www.filehippo.com/download_c...

Open Ccleaner, click Tools, then Startup.
