Any Finder windows you leave open when you shut your computer down will automatically reopen upon startup. Make sure you close all of your finder windows at shutdown and you shouldn't see them when you start back up.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

you could've accidently right clicked on the dock and set it to " open at login " right click on finder in the dock and just check that this isnt selected...

If there are no Finder windows open, then you have closed everything. There's no special trick to it - that was just a thought.

Check your Login Items under System Preferences => Accounts => (click your account name in the left window pane> => Login Items tab.

Make sure there's nothing weird going on in there. If you have stuff that you don't recognize, remove it.

The same thing used to happen to me so I stopped shutting down my computer. Seems to have fixed the problem: when I restart (every so often), no Finder on start up.

Ridiculous- adjective: deserving or inviting derision or mockery; absurd. ex. It is ridiculous how many people think the word ridiculous is spelled with an 'e'.
