Disabling TrueImageMonitor.exe & schedhlp.exe startup

I'm running Acronis True Image 2010 on my netbook, and I'm trying to trim down all the unecessary programs/services to optimize performance. Since I just manually run a backup once a week, I'm pretty sure I don't need True Image Monitor and Schedule Helper, so I'm trying to disable them from starting up. I went into the Services control panel and disabled the 'Acronis Nonstop Backup Service' and the 'Acronis Scheduler2 Service', and then went to the registry and checked HLKM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/[Run & RunOnce] and HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/[Run & RunOnce] to make sure there was nothing from Acronis in the startup entries. I then rebooted. However, about every 5 minutes WinPatrol pops up a couple of windows telling me TrueImageMonitor.exe and schedhlp.exe are trying to add themselves to my startup.

How do I stop this behavior?

Try to use msconfig to disable the startup items.
