I've went to the System Preferences to check my user's startup items, but Google Chrome isn't even in there. However, Google Chrome always starts up when I log into my Macbook Pro.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

Right-click the icon for it on your Dock, go to options and un-check "start at login".

Thanks for your suggestion. I've right clicked the icon on the dock, but the "Open at login" option isn't checked off.

This small checkbox can make all the difference:

I always uncheck this before I log off, but Chrome still always open. In some cases I don't even have Chrome open before I log off.

Thanks for your suggestion, however.

Go to system settings and click users and groups, then "start objects" remove chrome from there.

I had this for a while, but then it stopped after my ISP gave me a new modem. I don't know if there's a relation between the two, but there it is.
