    If you're running Lion, then go to System Preferences>General Preferences
    Deselect Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps

    System Preferences --> Accounts --> Login Items

    You might see those apps listed there. Use the [-] box to kill them.

    Do you quit your applications before turning off your computer? If not, that's why. My applications all open if I turn off my computer without quitting them, they stay closed if I quit them before hand. I'm running Lion.
