    Hello. I opened the voice over utility some time ago, and since then it has just been a pain in the butt. It starts up each time I start up my computer, so I have to go to Applications > Utilities > Activity Monitor in order to shut it down. I have tried to look through the preferences of the application, but I just can't figure out how to disable it to run at startup. Can anybody tell me how I do this?

    Have you checked System Preferences->Universal Access?

    Bit late but I just had this problem and to turn it off it is in the accounts settings in sys prefs:

    1- open sys prefs
    2- click on accounts
    3- click on login options
    4- unlock to edit these settings
    5- turn off 'Use VoiceOver in the login window'

    Nah! What makes you say that? You made it before three years had lapsed. Barely... :rolleyes:
