(Assuming you are using 12.04)

  1. Click on the little wrench icon at the top-right position of the panel.

  2. Select Startup Applications

  3. There should be an entry for "Cairo-dock", select it

  4. Remove the tick mark from the entry.

Logout and Login again to test it.

  • Run Startup Applications program

enter image description here

  • Find an item that start with "GLX-Dock" in the shown list and unchecked it.

enter image description here

In your next login Cairo Dock will not start at login time.

  • Thank You Very Much for responding and for this solution! :) I clicked Gear icon from Panel and opened Startup Applications because on My Dash No Program is showing as "Startup Application", I disabled Cairo Dock from Startup Applications by clicking Gear icon and launching the same!
