Hi,

I have an app that keeps starting up when I start my Mac. I have looked under the Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Items, but it's not listed there. Looked in the Library -> StartupItems and System -> Library -> StartupItems folders, but nothing there either. Unticked Open at Login option on Dock Icon, but still starts up every time I log in.

Don't know where to go from here - any help will be appreciated.

Bruce

The app is IBurst Terminal, which monitors my iBurst modem.

You've already checked the common places it would be found in the Apple preference menus. If there is no option for this in the iBurst preferences, would submit the question to them on how to turn it off. They have a couple of different places in the support section of their web site for doing so. Spawn may have more ideas, he's more seasoned with his Mac than I.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Are you still using the iBurst modem? Is the problem that you no longer use it but the iBurst Terminal keeps loading nevertheless?

iBurst Terminal is probably not something you can disable as long as you use the iBurst modem ... is it definitely an app? Is it in your Apps folder? Or is it something that is just part of the System Prefs ~> Network ~> PPPoE configurations for your internet connection?

I'm only using iBurst Modem for another month but wanted a heads-up on how to get rid of it once I'm done. It is an app and is in the Applications folder, but you're probably right in saying it's part of the whole modem installation. I will uninstall the modem at the end of the month and see if it goes away.

Thanks for suggestions.
