I'm having a problem with my log in items, as in I can't get them to stop opening up upon log in. I've into the preferences of each individual program and told it not to open and I've removed it from the Accounts tab of System Preferences, all to no avail.

Any suggestions? The applications in question are My Day from the Microsoft Office Suit and MainMenu.

Thanks. I have a MacBook running Leopard.

I can't speak for MainMenu but for My Day, go to My Day > Preferences > General > uncheck "Open after computer logon". I would imagine that MainMenu has something similar in it's preferences so it would be worthwhile to check through the app prefs.

Go into System preferences on the Dock, System > Accounts > LogIn Items and make sure nothing is selected there. To remove on login, select and hit the little (-) sign.
