I can help with issue #1. Check your Startup Items - these can be found in the Accounts pane of System Preferences. The offending application should be listed there - just give it the heave-ho, and it won't start automatically anymore (unless some other component of the printer software you're using automatically puts it back).

I don't use AppleWorks, so I can't help with issue #2.
