How do I stop services from restarting after I stop them?

I can do kill pid at command line but when I restart they start back up. How do I stop them for good? Thanks.

look into the /etc/rc?.d/folder.

things begining with S, start at that boot level, and things with a K are killed at that boot level.

Different distros have different ways of starting programs at boot-up. We'll need to know what you are using to give accurate assistance.
