    Back up all data.

    Do as before with the same line, but this time select

    Services Reveal in Finder (or just Reveal)

    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open with an item selected. Move the selected item to the Desktop, leaving the window open. Add some login items, then log out and test. If there's no change, quit again and put the item you moved back where it was, overwriting the one that may have been created in its place. Otherwise, delete the item you moved.

    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination  command-C. In the Finder, select

    Go Go to Folder...

    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.

    I followed what you mentioned.


    This time login items remains in User&Groups.


    But I wonder why the apps I added to login items before moving "" to the desktop still are launched when I login though they don't appear in login items in User&Groups.

    The file is corrupt. You have to recreate it.

    Let me ask in details.


    I moved "" to the Desktop, so there was no login items related files, I guess.


    And after moving it to the Desktop, I added some apps. Did this operation create new ""?


    Or do I need to do another operation?

    You have already created a new login item file. Now you must add all the items that you had before. You can delete the old file.

    Sorry to be late in writing back.


    I added all the items and then logout and re-login to check if it is OK.


    But, login items in User&Group disappears again though they've been launched

    when I login.

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.

    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.

    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.

    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you boot, and again when you log in.

    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.

    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.

    The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.

    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?

    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

    Linc, sorry to be late in writing you back. In Japan, here's a custom to celebrate new year for three days.


    Well, I tested in safe mode, but the result was same.

    Back up all data.

    Launch the Font Book application and validate all fonts. You must select the fonts in order to validate them. See the built-in help and this support article for instructions. If Font Book finds any issues, resolve them.

    From the application's menu bar, select

    FileRestore Standard Fonts...

    You'll be prompted to confirm, and then to enter your administrator login password.

    Boot in safe mode to rebuild the font caches. Boot again as usual and test.

    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t boot in safe mode. In that case, ask for instructions.

    Also note that if you deactivate or remove any built-in fonts, for instance by using a third-party font manager, the system may become unstable.
