    Whenever I restart my computer, both Steam and Skype immediately and automatically start up, on their own. How do I turn that off? How do I set things up so they only start up when I click on them, to purposely choose to start them?

    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    In both 10.7 and 10.8 Accounts has been renamed to Users & Groups. The same steps apply, nonetheless.
