Hi,

When I turn on my MacBook Pro, the "Finder" program opens up automatically for some reason. This just started happening yesterday.....something is wrong or making this happen....

Any ideas?

I have "Leopard" and thought I could use the "Time Machine" thing to restore my settings from a few days ago....but I guess I can't unless I have an external hard drive?

Pls help!

Thanks

i dont think you understood stretch, stretch is saying if any open window (not just finder) is up when you shut down, finder will open upon startup.
