    How do I prevent all the programs on the bottom of my screen from opening when I restart my mac? It's getting very annoying as I have to close them all and it lags...

    The reason Scooby asks is that in Lion things come back to life after a reboot but in SL the only things coming back should be finder windows you had open and things you have in login items.

    In SL, you can go to system preferences and remove login items.

    In Lion, you should close any apps you don't want coming back before you reboot. There is probably a system prefs setting for this as well but I like having things come back where I left them... in most cases.
