Title should say it all. I am running the most current Mountain Lion OSX. When I start up my computer my home folder opens up automatically. How can I prevent this? Thanks.

When you hit shutdown the following pops up. Uncheck if checked "Reopen Windows when logging back in".

If that is not checked let us know.

If it's open when you shut down, it'll open when you start up.

If you uncheck what I showed above nothing should open except items set to open at Login in Users under System Preferences.

Yes I have checked Users under system preferences and everything is as it should be. Now I ran Onyx automation again, and as before it corrects itself for awhile. Then somewhere along the line, later on it will open up again. I am baffled by this.

I guess it is. Because somehow I managed to do this without even trying!
