At some point you must have clicked 'Yes' to the question about starting K3B,
with the 'Don't ask me again' box checked.

Right-click the icon in the systray (the one that says suse hardware tool,
looks like a PCI card) and select 'Configure'. There you can set which
programs to start, and if you uncheck the 'Autostart' checkbox, it won't be
started at all.
