Vlc starts automatically

Everytime I start my computer, vlc is in memory.

Is there a way to find out why it is happening?

I do have this as a startup program.

cvlc /usr/share/sounds/My_Sounds/Relax_6_Seconds.mp3

Thanks.

I'm confused. It autostarts because you chose to autostart it, surely?

You can try "Tools -> Preferences -> ShowAll -> Playlist" in VLC and check that "Auto Start" is cleared and "Play and exit" is ticked, but note that this will affect ALL your VLC use.

Alternatively, turn the MP3 into a WAV file and use aplay instead?
