Hey guys. For some reason Google Chrome starts up whenever I turn on my Mac.
It's not like a browser window opens, but the indicator under the dock icon lights up. Why is that?

It only started doing that for the last... what, two days now? At least I noticed it for the last couple of days. (Maybe since the update to Chrome version 21?)

What could be causing this?

Delete any occurrences of Chrome from the following locations:

System Preferences > Accounts > yourusername > Login Items
(Lion and ML users: System Preferences > Users & Groups > yourusername > Login Items)


/Library/LaunchAgents/
(Lion and ML users: In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > then enter the path)


~/Library/LaunchAgents/
(Lion and ML users: In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > then enter the path)


/Library/StartupItems/
(Lion and ML users: In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > then enter the path)

Also, make sure to quit Chrome before you shut down or restart your Mac.

Yeah. For some reason Chrome was in that list. I wonder why. I didn't do it...
