    Safari Hanging
    Occasionally Safari freezes and hangs on my Mac. Only way to resolve seems to be force restart?
    When I restart software opens which wasn't open when I closed?

    Check under System Preferences Account and Login Items and uncheck the Apps you don't want to open on restart.
    As to hanging Safari, how much Disk Space have you left on your HD. If you have fallen under 15% then you will start to see the SBOD (spinning ball of death) a lot more often as the OS needs disk space for its swap files and to run at its optimum. So if you are running low, BACKUP asap, then get rid of somethings to clean it up.

    Other than that, download Oynx for your Version of OS (its important you get the one for your OS or it could do more damage than good) and then run all the scripts under Maintenance and then restart your Mac and se if that makes a difference. . . IF not, pop back in and we will go from there.
    Next time in, list your Mac and what version OS you are running too. The more info the better chance we have of helping.

    Are you quitting apps or just closing the active window inside the app? Command+W just closes the window you are working in. Command+Q actually quits the app completely. I ask because when you restart, there is an option to have all previous windows, apps open back up and that may be why you see the apps opening again.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
