    I got a new IMAC OSX 10.7

    I installed microsoft office max 2011 on it.

    Every time i start up the computer firefox, microsoft word, microsoft powerpoint and itunes all open. I do not have them "ticked" to open in the dock. I do not have them selected as "login items", nor are they in the login items box - noting is.

    Please help! I'm going nuts about this.

    Also, when i close powerpoint by pressing the red "x" in the corner, it does nothing. I have to go to "powerpoint" then "quit powerpoint" to get it to go away.

    On another note, my IMAC has frozen 3 times since buying it 3 days ago, one such occasion was WHEN I WAS DOING THE INITIAL SETUP. I need this computer for university. I am at my wits end.

    it's okay...

    i figured it out, and feel a bit ashamed.

    I didn't realise that one of the features of 10.7 was to re open any "open" apps when i restart.

    follow the link below to solve.


    however I still don't know why it's frozen 3 times. The first was taking my profile picutre, the second and third youtube watching videos.

    turn off resume and everytime you shut your imac down do not click/check the reopen applications.
