I do not run Tomcat on Windows. So with that I am making a couple of 
assumptions. If Tomcat is registered as a service, it should be listed in 
the services found under manage on a right click of My Computer. From there 
you can set the service to be manual, automatic or disabled. By setting it 
to manual, you can return there and start it from a right click any time. Or 
you can disable it there and start it from the command line. I also think if 
it is set to manual you will be able to start and stop it with the icons. 
There are others on the list that can correct me here if I am wrong.

Set the service to manual.
Use the start/stop links.
