    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 17 2.8 GHz Intel OS 10.7.3 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 Core 2 Duo
    Open Windows and running apps
    I moved to Lion about three weeks ago. When I shut down or restart my computer every application that was running open up again, even specific files on excel. If I was browsing with Safari it opens every tab i was using as well. This happens even after I shutdown every application and close tabs and quit Safari before shutting down or restarting. Does anyone know why this happens and if I can turn it off. I don't like the idea of spreadsheet with sensitive information opening up if someone borrows my computer at home.

    Thanks for the help.

    Go to System Preferences, General. Remove the check from the box that states: "Restore Windows..................." That will do it.

    Yes, this is new with Lion. It's a feature.
