I have a number of (background) programs that startup automatically on login even though they have been disabled (unchecked) on the
Login Items pane of the
Users & Groups System Preferences. Examples include DropBox, ChronoSync Backgrounder, and Boingo.
Q: How can I disable/control these login items that don't respond to the systems preferences settings? Related sub-questions:
- Why do the checkboxes in the login items list not work?
- What are all of the places that non-system startup items can be found/controlled?
Current system configuration: MacBook (13in Aluminum, Late 2008), Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50), But this problem existed on Snow Leopard before upgrading to Lion.
