Applications launches automatically after restart

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 ?

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.

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.
