My laptop was distributed by corporate IT. I have two items in my Login Items which cannot be hidden or removed. See screen shot...

Inside the /Library/Managed Preferences/juba/loginwindow.plist file I see reference to these two items. It is searching for a server which is of course not found unless I am connected to the corporate network. I work remotely and do not regularly connect to that network.

How can I remove these items?

Do you have administrator powers on your computer? If no, how you remove the items might be to contact corporate IT. – Daniel Nov 28 '12 at 16:02
You forgot to attach the screenshot. – duci9y Nov 28 '12 at 16:27
+1 Daniel Lawson. If your account is managed, that means they manage whatever they want on it. You need administrator access to override that. – Harv Nov 28 '12 at 17:04
