    For some reason, iPhoto now launches whenever I start my iMac. How on earth do I stop it?

    Also, since checking out the international character palette, there's a little British flag on my menu bar which I cannot get rid of...

    ALSO (while I'm here!) why does the blue progress bar never complete on my mosaic screen-saver: it's always there in the middle of the mosaic, about 95% complete?

    Thanks anyone!!

    Right click on the iphoto icon and the dock and you should see that 'Launch on Startup' has been checked. Click that option again and it should stop launching on startup. If its not checked, make sure you don't have a camera or card reader with a memory card plugged in when you turn the computer on, as iphoto will usually automatically start when it detects those things.

    As for your issue with the flag in the menu bar, open up the system preferences panel and select international. Click on Input Menu, then clear the checkbox to 'show input menu in the menu bar' down at the bottom of the screen.

    thanks a lot!

    Menu bar thingie sorted.

    the iPhoto problem turns out to be caused by an SD card that was in my printer that was plugged in.
