    Skype and Dropbox auto-start when I boot my Mac and I can not find a preference to stop it. How can I turn them from auto-starting through Mac OS?
    Thanks.

    For Dropbox, click the icon in the menu bar (top right of display), click on "Preferences...", and uncheck the box "Start Dropbox on system startup" on the General Pane.

    I don't know about Skype.
