Whenever I restart my Mac, the last opened applications launches automatically. "Close windows when quitting an application" is ticked. But still, the issue is still recurring.

Could someone help me ?

System Preferences>Users+Groups>Login Items while on your account.

It the application in question in that list?

If so then just press the '-' button at the bottom to remove it.

Hope that helps.

None of the applications that open automatically are in the list.

None of the applications that open automatically are in the list.

Then i'm stumped, try unchecking: "Close windows when quitting an application" then restarting and then checking it again.

I can't think of anything else - sorry.

I have tried unchecking and restarting but didn't help.
No worries, thank you for your time and hopefully someone has an answer. :)

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 above)


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


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