    HI. I have an application on my computer that opens twice when restarting my computer. My two main problems with this are 1) why does it automatically open when I restart my computer and 2) why do TWO copies of the same application open at once:mad:!!?? both function fine. Can anybody help?

    What app is it?

    You can check the following locations for apps that automatically launch on startup and delete any you don't need/want:
    • System Preferences > Users & Groups > yourusername > Login Items (SL and older: System Preferences > Accounts > yourusername > Login Items)
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > /Library/LaunchAgents
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > ~/Library/LaunchAgents
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > /Library/StartupItems

    You still didn't answer the question about which app you're talking about. Also, if you go through the list I posted, that may solve your problem.

    Oh ok I'll go through that list and see if that fixes it. Its called Meastro2 by Apogee. It's a interface software for production.

    I figured out now that with in my "startup" apps, there are ones selected that dont start up and the ones that do start up are not selected. So this makes things even more complicated.
