I recently purchased my mac air and ever since I installed MS office, word auto launches everytime I login. I have gone to system preference/user&groups and there is nothing listed under login items.

MacBook Air, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

    Make sure Word is actually closed down before you restart. Just closing the Word window that is open does not close/quit Word.


    Also when you shut down or restart there is a check box to "Reopen windows when logging back in". Make sure that is unchecked.
