The first thing to do is remove it from your Login Items. You can do this by navigating to System Preferences - Accounts - Login Items. Highlight the app(s) you don't want starting on login and click the - symbol below.


Once you have done this navigate to the Applications folder, locate the app and drag it to the trash or right click it and choose "Move to Trash."

Do a "find" on the application and drag everything to the trash.  Also, go to system preferences>accounts>login items and delete anything there for the application.
