A weird thing happens when I login to my 15" early 2011 macbook pro.


As soon as I login the finder window comes up pointing a resource file deep in the finder. (See pic)


Also when I open say a keynote presentation all the older presentations open up as well. Really unusual and frustrating to have to close all of them to begin working.
