I created a bootable disc incase I needed to reinstall Lion which has appeared in previous Option startups. Now the result of the option startup shows my internal hard drive and a "recovery" drive, and the bootable drive no longer appears.

My computer is an iMac running the latest version of Lion. When I start normally the finder flashes a box with the option to open windows or not open them. Further, I think Evernote started this problem. Further, I have removed all "Start up" items from my user account.

Thanks for your help.

QUOTE Thanks
