I'm running Mavericks from a partition of my hard drive on the iMac (the major partition is 10.6.8). Some oddities:-

 

1) When I shut down open applications don't quit as in previous versions and are still loaded when I start up again. Is that to be expected?

 

2) When I start up a file called "ms.lprog " is open. It contains just one tiny item:- "DisplayName.strings" (71 bytes). I don't know what this is but I'm sure it shouldn't open. Any ideas? and can I get it not to? Or delete it?

 

Thanks

iPad, iOS 7.0.3

    1. De-select the check box:

    2. Don't know what that is. What app is opening it?

    Could you post a screenshot of the file you're seeing?

    Thanks. It appears to be a Finder window, nothing more, and it contains a localization file that should not be removed. It could belong to any number of required apps. Just close the window using the red button.

     

    You can determine its path by control-clicking the folder icon at the top of the window.

     

    Does that window open every time you start your Mac, even after you close the window?

    Select (triple-click to select the entire line), then control-click and from the contextual menu, select Services > Reveal in Finder:

     

    ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.finder.savedState

     

    Drag the selected folder to the Desktop.

     

    Re-launch the Finder by following the instructions here: Mac OS X: How to quit an unresponsive application using Force Quit

    Determine if that results in any change.

    Thanks for the update. If you don't know what that program in Login Items is, you should remove it with the "–" (minus) button. De-selecting the checkbox merely hides it, and you ought to know what programs are started when you log in.
