    When I log into my System Profiler, I see that I have three items listed to StartUp. These items I do not use.

    Now when I go into System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items, these items are not listed.

    When I go into my Library, StartupItems is not listed.

    I've have run a search for StartupItems on the entire machine but it's not located anywhere. Does anyone have an idea on how I may remove these items from my Start up?

    Some applicationa install items so they're available to all users, so they would go into the "/Library", instead of the user library at "~/Library"

    The "/" denotes the root level of the volume. "~/" would be your user folder.

    For reference, I have Parallels 4, and only have the ParallelsDesktopTransporter in my StartupItems.

    Aha!!!! You were right. There was another folder.

    I'll delete them out. Thanks!
