    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.

    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. :)

    Delete any occurrences of those apps 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 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)
