    A warm welcome to Mac-Forums, marshome.

    It's good to have you with us, but we do need a tad more information.

    1. What is the application that is auto-starting? Crucial to know this. Has it always behaved like this or is this a new event?

    2. What Mac have you go? Model type (Mini, MacBook, Desktop etc?). Year of model? Which Operating System (OS) is it running.

    I'm sorry. It may seem like a lot of questions, but for us to help, we have to know as much about your setup as you do.

    Please post back with as much info as possible including these answers, and well do our best to sort things out for you.

    One way is when shutting down/restarting/logging out, there is a checkbox to reopen items when logging back in option. Another thing to check is right click on the app icon in the Dock, and deselect “Open at login”.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
