Ever since I got my MBP Superdrive update a month or so ago, it keeps trying to re-install EVERY time I power up again. Where can I find the folder that OSX looks for to launch apps at startup? Thanks in advance!

login items in system prefs -> accounts

give that a go and see if it helps. in case you're new to mac: go to the blue apple in the upper-left corner, system prefs, accounts pane, select your username and go to login items tab in the window.

There isn't one.

1) Do a Spotlight search for "SuperDrive" to remove the offending app (if it's still around).

2) Then go to System Preferences > Accounts > Choose your account and enter password if needed > Login Items and delete the item in question

[edit] Blast mmusic got to it before me. Oh well, maybe spelling it out helped?

The place to check would be in your startup items under your profile:

System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items..
