You may need to delete them from all these locations

C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
C:\WINDOWS\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

Also run MSCONFIG (start, run) and select the STARTUP tab

Untick the box that launches the PIF files and restart your machine and see if it is still running.
There may be another process running causing these files to be run every time so look for a funny looking file name in the STARTUP area of MSCONFIG (eg OOFASFDVA.exe)

To completely avoid, turn PC off. Truthfully.
If you really want to use it, prevention with running programs are best. Read their docs on how to use them and update them. All these are FREE.
Oh, yes! KEEP WINDOWS UP TO DATE! Use the AUTOMATIC UPDATE feature.
