I have turned off Restore Windows in Lion, but everytime I start up it opens apps I have shut down.
I find this function is not useful. I would rather have a manual restore that I can call when I want. Sort of like the Go to Recent Folders menu.
Please update your system to 10.7.4.
Also stop leaving Apps open. Close them before you shut down or Restart and they won't reopen.
None of the above worked. I tuned off the Restore Windows and I shut down apps I don't want.
Sometimes, I will be working on something and an app will start up randomly?????
You have a serious problem with your Mac. No program should start up all by itself.
May be time to Erase the drive and reinstall everything.
