    Go to System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> make sure your user name is selected then click on Login Items.

    You can click on the “-“ key on the left at the bottom of the box to delete any items you do not want loading and being open. Clicking “hide” will still load them just minimize them.

    Make sure to leave the items you want to open - like in my case CCC User Agent and Backup & Sync for my google backup - alone so they still work.

    Hopefully that will fix it!

    I think this might be a different setting.

    When you choose to Close Down or Restart your Mac, a window opens giving you 59 seconds for this to occur automatically; or you can choose Cancel or do it now.

    The window also has a checkbox "Reopen windows when logging back in". Uncheck that Box. That will stop these windows appearing when you next start up your Mac.

    Also, check the icons in the Dock for those apps, and make sure they are not setup to "open at login". To check, right click on the icon in the Dock and select Options.
    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Nope, that's not what Lisa said.

    Hi Ron

    Have you followed the advice in posts #4 and #5? These are complimentary in a sense.

    One makes sure that all windows currently open when you shut down do NOT open when you reboot. The other ensures that apps don't open at login; although that should have been covered in Lisa's post #2 - but it's best to follow through on all 3 suggestions.

    Ian, I have noticed "Login items" are usually added when an app is installed or through their individual Settings/Preferences.

    Thanks, Bob. I'm sure that's true. Of course some people add a login for a specific reason and then forget about it.

    Hopefully, if the OP follows through on the three suggestions offered, he should have resolution. Fingers crossed.

    You can. I don’t think it will change the auto loading apps. I have my automatic login set to off. I also just have Show the sleep, restart, and shutdown buttons checked. The rest are not checked but that is just a preference.

    Ron, I don't think has anything to do with login issues nor any of the three options offered to you in the previous posts.

    What you have turned off just means that you have to enter a PW when you start up the Mac. Which is fine. But your difficulty remains.

    Follow the 3 advices and I reckon your problem will go away
