Why the hell this Finder window opens on startup?

Hi guys,

How to disable this window?

It pops up every time on the startup. This happened every time on Lion to...

Thank you!

I have not used either 10.7 or.8, but i may have an idea. Try to disable the open current windows next time i power on, or just x it, and shut down a few times..... I trult have no idea, but the last one helps sometimes on 10.4 (im ppc).

Resolved it.

Settings -> Users & Groups -> Select yourself -> Login Items -> Check 'Hide' on 'MacOS'.

Thanks!

That just hides the window on startup. It will still open the window.

Go to login items and select 'MacOS' and click the minus button (-) below to remove it completely.
