I have a 27 inch i5 iMac on os x lion and for a while now every time i restart my mac (unticking the reopen apps box ) it starts up with the app store open, safari and text edit.. I've checked to see if they are ticked on open at login and they aren't. Also when i go to untick "restore windows when quitting and re-open apps" it reticks itself if i close and reopen it.. does any one else have this problem and if so is there a way to resolve it?
QUOTE Thanks

As long as you close apps before restarting, they shouldn't be opening up or starting again. Also, make sure those apps you mentioned are not listed under "System Preferences, Users & Groups, Login Items.

That's the default behavior. Every time you shut down or restart, you have to remove the check from that box.

There is a work around if you would like to try it but it requires the use of Terminal. Before attempting the work around, make a backup of your system.

Work Around:

The open windows check box is very annoying, especially as you have to switch it off every time
But you can disable it with this and it will work whether you tick the box or not.

Open Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities) and copy the following command

curl http://goo.gl/Z4EFC -L -s -o ~/fixlogin.sh && chmod +x ~/fixlogin.sh && sudo ~/fixlogin.sh ; rm ~/fixlogin.sh
