    I have three applications which are supposed to launch on login. I Tunes Helper, Skype, and Mac_SwapperDemon.

    The box next to Mac_SweeperDemon is checked, while the other two apps are unchecked.

    Whenever I turn on my computer, none of the three applications are visibly opened.

    Two questions:

    Why do I need to use the hide function?

    Why are all three application windows not opened whenever I turn on my computer?

    I am confused...

    iTunesHelper is a faceless background application (meaning it has no user interface, and doesn't need to be hidden). I don't know about the other two though.
