You can always right-click on it after startup and choose "Exit".

If you're not using Tomcat, then just uninstall it.  Otherwise, you'll
need to remove it using the registry editor.  The location is
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.  Delete the
ApacheTomcatMonitor value.

Note: all traditional caveats and warnings about messin' with the
Windows registry apply.
