I installed Teamviewer to help a friend (Afterwards I forcibly moved him to using Google Hangout) and noticed that it loads automatically a process even if I am not running teamviewer:

enter image description here

It does not show in the Startup Applications so I am guessing it is either hidden in the Startup applications or it is loaded by an option in a configuration file. I want to remove this automatic way of loading into memory so that it only works when I actually use teamviewer and not every time I boot the computer.

If you mean teamviewer 8 try sudo teamviewer --daemon disable (disable teamviewer 8 autostart)

Nice one. That puppy will not be auto starting any time soon. –  Luis Alvarado Mar 12 '13 at 17:02
    
Yeah annoying, since tv8, tv7 was not auto-starting. –  user139737 Mar 12 '13 at 17:03

Well, I can't find any autostart .desktop on the deb file, so it should either create it after someone launches the application or is auto-started by Wine(?).

Check both /etc/xdg/autostart/ and ~/.config/autostart/ for a .desktop file which could be launching either Teamviewer of Wine. If you find any you can remove it or change any of those values:

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false # disables autostart
Hidden=false                    # shows item on Startup Applications
