Hit the windows key & R and type MSCONFIG, go to the startup tab and take the tick out of any entry that mentions Frostwire.

It's probably a good idea to uninstall the whole program to be honest as it's most likely being used to illegally share music & films - there's not that many legal uses for programs like Frostwire...

.....and I would then run an anti-malware scan as well
