    Every time I restart my mid 2014 rMBP 15" Google Chrome launches automatically. I do _not_ have it set in its preferences, as far as I know, to automatically launch or to be the default browser.

    I do happen to use the Google Drive menu bar app, and am uncertain if this has to do with the problem.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Does Chrome shows up in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items? If it does that is why it is launching. You can remove it from there.

    The Google Drive app has it's own preference to launch on system startup but it really doesn't has anything to do with Chrome. So setting it to launch shouldn't cause Chrome to launch as well.
