Why is iTunes opening automatically and how do I stop it?

I run Windows 8.1 and I have iTunes. Whenever I turn on my PC it automatically opens iTunes, whether my device is plugged in or not. Please help me out, thanks,

    Sounds like iTunes is in the Start Up folder. If you remove it from that folder, it should prevent it from starting when you boot your system. Found this link for how to access the start up folder in Windows 8.

    2) Type MSCONFIG... select Selective startup, Un-select item in "Startup" tab, and Apply.
