Hi all,

Would really appreciate it if someone would instruct me how to stop applications from automatically launching themselves during start-up. Many Thanks. Have a blessed Christmas!

Apple -> System Preferences -> Accounts -> (click on your account) -> Login Items (at the top)

Then just uncheck what you dont want to start.

I personally have tried this, but the one application which still persists to launch when I fire up my MBP is TruPhone. The box is un-checked, but it still launches automatically, and is doing me head in.

This just hides it....
Highlight TruPhone, and then click the - under the dialogue box.
