A terminal window has started to show up when I boot up my Mac.I don't think it is anything significant but I'd like to get rid of it because it takes a few minutes to complete it's task.
I do not understand Java but I'll bet there is a little bit of a Java script that would dispose of this annoyance.
I'd appreciate it if someone out there could advise me on what that script is.

I am running OS 10.4.11.

Thanks

I might be able to help you but I need to know what the application is. Can you scroll to the top of that window and tell me what it says?

EDIT: It does indeed appear to be Java. Alright, let's start out simple. What have you installed lately? Do you have anything in your login items (System Preferences > Accounts > click your user name > Login Items)?

Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you....I appreciate your response.

I have checked the Login Items and hidden all of them.The Darwin window still opens.....
I have attached the full Darwin window showing the Java command this time. Hopefully that will give you a better idea of what is going on.
Thanks again

Hiding is meant to hide the display of the application. It still starts.
