Optix should automatically disable the service when the Optix Workstation has been started. If it does not, Search for Services or services.msc .

Under Services, locate Windows Image Acquisition(WIA)

Stop the service, then Disable it.

Additional note - Even though service has been disabled, Windows Updates can change the status of this service to Automatic without you knowing it.
