    In the last month or so I have noticed a google login box appearing when I log in. It is pre-populated with my email and a password (I cannot see the password). If I try and delete the username or password the box closes. As far as I know I don't have anything that requires a google login opening at startup (or after). Can anyone shed any light on this?
    This is everything that is open in activity monitor - I have no idea what most of these processes are:

    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

    Thanks for the responses - I had checked the startup items - but found nothing unusual....

    I think that was it Busysync - thanks
