How do I prevent Quik for Windows from launching automatically literally every 30 minutes?

How can I prevent Quik for Windows from launching every 30 minutes and literally everytime my computer wakes up from sleep mode???

Backgraound info:

 

I do not have my GoPro connected to the computer when it happens.

I have gone to the settings and unchecked the box that allows the program launching every time the GoPro is connected.

There seems to be no other settings menu available for the program that controls launch permissions. 

 

 

Any help would be great because I do love the program and want to keep it, it is just super annoying that it interferes with everything else whenever Im just casually using my computer.

See if this helps.
Go to Services on your Windows computer and look for any processes associated with the Quik app. Under Startup, make sure it is set to manual. If it is, then select Disabled.
