2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo

 

This is my desktop computer.  I've noticed that it has started opening both Firefox and Chrome when I start the computer.  I know that there is a checkbox when I  log off/sign off that indicates that windows should be reopened. 

 

1) I closed Firefox and Chrome

2) I left the checkbox checked "Reopen windows when logging off"

3) I logged off and logged back in.

Chrome and Firefox opened.

 

1) I closed Firefox and Chrome

2) I unchecked the checkbox "Reopen windows whe logging off"

3) I logged off and logged back in

Chrome and Firefox still opened.

 

This is trivial but annoying.  I do recall that Windows had a startup folder, but I did not think that there was an equivalent folder.

I've gone through the options on the browsers themselves and I don't see anything that defaults to "open at startup"

 

Why do these two browsers insist on opening at startup?
