    Hi

    I have recently converted to a MacBook.

    I have two accounts setup - Administrator/primary user, and a secondary account.
    When logging into the secondary account, numerous Finder Windows open up automatically - too many to count!!!! Which makes things very slow. All is fine with the primary login.

    I have been into the accounts section of system preferences, and made sure nothing is automatically setup to open when logging in.

    Can anyone help?

    What folders/files/drives do the Finder windows open up to? All the same or different locations?

    Did you get this computer used and are you using the accounts that came with the computer?

    I bought this MacBook brand new, and so all (2) accounts being used were set up by me.

    When logging into the secondary login, the folder window entitled "Primary User's Computer" opens up.

    It contains two icons: one for 'MacintoshHD', and the other for 'Network'.
    The multiple windows that open up, are all of this same destination.

    Thanks.

    Weird. Did it always do this or did it start after you did or installed something?
