Unhappy Unwanted programs start-up with KDE...?

This is wierd to me. I installed Superkaramba successfully and also tried to install a s Superkaramba XMMS player, which I haven't got to work yet. Now every time I start up (login) to KDE...3 programs start-up automatically:

XMMS; xmDiscoTux; and wmplug,wmplug.

I have NO idea what the last 2 are?! How can I stop this?

xmDiscoTux is the 'dancing penguin' plugin for XMMS. You should be able to stop it by running XMMS, going to the preferences panel, visualisation plugins and deselect the dancing tux option.

wmplug es un plugin incluido con xmms que muestra un vumeter digital como dock. (wmplug is a plugin included with XMMS that shows a digital VU-meter in a dock (think WindowMaker)).
