    What the title says. A couple of days ago things just stopped opening at login. Any ideas? And yes I have repaired disk permissions.

    What Mac OS X and what Mac are you using, and what items specifically don't open?

    Have you taken a look at login items under System Preferences > Accounts?

    They weren't ticked in accounts, thanks. But two things are, not sure what they do. iTunesHelper and iAntiVirus? I have never downloaded an anti virus, so what is it? And what does iTunesHelper do.

    Ok, thanks. What is Raptr and Smart Reporter? They both show icons of a blank page, so I assume they aren't there, so should I just get rid of them from the list?

    If you Google the name of any process or app, you'll find information about them.

    Is "Stuff" the name of an application or just the general use of the word stuff?

    Also if an application or item is not checked in the Login Items window, it does only mean, that it does not automatically hide.

    Just by being in that list, an application or item is automatically started.

    Have you tried, creating another user account and seen if the problem still exists?

    Are you able to create a new account to see if it is linked to your and your Mum's account settings, or if it seems to be a general problem?

    To quote myself again:

    Right, I missed that. A 2008 (I think) iMac running 10.6.2.

    Bump, any ideas? Getting kinda annoying.
