IMac Intel :: Window Automatically Opens When Log In - How To Stop It


When I log into my admin account on my 2009 iMac, almost always my home folder opens up. What setting, either in the Finder preferences or the System preferences (or for that matter anywhere elsc) can I change to NOT have the window (or for that matter, any window) automatically open on log in? There is no setting on the start up items on my admin account on the system preferences to deal with this and I don't know of anywhere else to check.

IMac Intel :: When Enter Password To Log In, File Vault Not Opens And Says Need To Repair?
When I enter my password in to log on to my only account a message appears telling me filevault-protected home folder did not open and needs to be repaired. When i click ok to repair the folder another message comes up with unable to log in to the user account at this time because an error occured. This started a couple of nights ago and the only thing I can think of that might have caused it is that I deleted around 5 or 6 files that showed up in the today folder. They were jpegs with a blank icon ,when I clicked on them they opened as a scrambled text file.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Get Imac To Stop Automatically Searching For Updates
I cannot get my imac to stop automatically searching for updates. I set preferences to monthly, or turn it off - it doesn't matter I cannot change it from checking for updates constantly. Furthermore, once it's checked for updates I cannot dismiss the ones I do not need or want. It constantly asks me to install the updates even though I would have no use for them.

Apple wants cash to solve the problem. Since it began occurring  after my last paid OS update, that's BS.

Final Cut Pro :: Opening The Log And Capture Window I Get The Preview Disabled Color Bars Window?
I am having a problem with capture. When opening the log and capture window I get the Preview Disabled Color bars window. Device control works and the time code displays only no picture. I cannot batch capture, it won't let me. I have done hours of forum reading to no avail, tried all of the tricks, i.e. backtracking through Quicktimes using Pacifist, from 7.6 back to 7.1.6 i think. I even reinstalled the OS in desperation last night. None of it works. Got a job, need to get it into the machine...desperate for a solution...any takers? I'm going to go buy a new firewire cable even though I feel that is not the problem.

I am using a G4 dual 1 Ghz mac and a MacBook Pro running both running Tiger
Trying to capture using a Panasonic DVX 100a...and/or a...Canon Hv30I have run the cams straight into the comps and through external drives, still no go.Footage is 30p shot on the DVX100a

I've even been trying to capture with Premier Pro cs3 on the macbook pro. This seems like a quicktime nightmare issue, but open to any suggestions. Both comps worked with this set up recently, I think that updates may have been inadvertently installed on the OS and QT.

IMac Intel :: Opens New Finder And Highlight Program
If I tried to open an application from the dock, it would open the finder and highlight the program. If I clicked a link in Safari, it would open a new tab with the page. Quick-buttons in Safari were activating other parameters than the ones they were supposed to. (For example, font size big/small were suddenly back/forward commands.) Not feeling at ease for the moment. Possible virus/intrusion? Perhaps a hacker test? Very strange, as I've NEVER had an issue until this moment.

IMac Intel :: Randomly Opens Dashboard - No Apparent Reason
We just purchased an iMac after loving our MacBookPro. We're having an issue with the keyboard wherein it randomly opens the dashboard for no apparent reason. Sometimes moving the keyboard does this and random buttons do it as well such as #3, #4 backspace, space, etc. This is quite annoying as when we are typing, we are frequently needing to close the dashboard. This has been happening since we first opened and set up our new computer. We called customer support but they told us we'd have to go to an Apple Store..? even though we purchased it online. This is all so crazy since the reason we bought a Mac in the first place was because they supposedly "just work" and because of their supposed excellent customer service (which I am not seeing with our recent call to customer service.

OS X Leopard :: Mail App Opens Automatically At Startup?
the apple Mail program has been opening automatically upon starting my computer or login. I've never set this as a preference and have not found anywhere to turn it off in either the Mail or system preferences. I have also checked startup items and it is not listed there, either. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but when Mail starts up automatically like this, sometimes the mailboxes seem to have problems loading and I have to restart the program to fix them. This automatic startup began spontaneously

ITunes :: Opens And Plays Certain MP3 Files Automatically
This just started in the last week or two, but my itunes will be completely closed, and suddenly it opens and play a certain mp3 file, then the next then one more. This isn't any particular playlist or anything. The files are probably all in my download folder and it just goes in order. This happens many times per day. Often times my computer was actually asleep and it wakes it to play these files.

Looking at my console log, I get the following two things right when it happens.
2/3/12 8:48:09.366 AM [0x0-0x1f11f1].com.apple.iTunes: Returning 0x0. Advertising wake service for libraryIdentifier "EA6D19640E6DBDE0".
2/3/12 8:48:20.346 AM [0x0-0x1f11f1].com.apple.iTunes: Version from driver for Certificates 1

So I'm assuming whatever is happening has to do with these log items. How to stop this? It's very bothersome when I'm in the middle of a business call, etc. I need to keep my MBP volume up as well because I have various alerts I need to hear.

OS X :: Determine Where New Finder Window Opens?
I've been using OSX since it first came out but one thing I still don't understand is how you determine where a new finder window will appear.

I recall someone once saying open a window, press CTRL then close the window and the next window will appear in the same spot as the now closed window. That doesnt work, nor does pressing command or any other combination I have tried.

Mac Safari :: Opens At Login And Startup - How To Stop It
Only on my main user's profile, but the user's startup items does not have the Safari checked to open. This has been happening for month's but as I rarely shut down the system I have allowed this to continue. I have emptied caches, reset Safari, tossed preferences, but cannot locate the culprit.

All of the software (including Safari) is up-to-date.

Any ideas anyone?

OS X Tiger :: Erase / Reinstall - Nothing Opens Automatically On Putting Disc
I'm trying to do an erase/reinstall of OS X Tiger on my Powerbook G4. When I put the disc in, nothing opens automatically, I have to select the install app manually. I'll get to the "press here to restart the computer and continue with the install" screen, and when I restart I get no further action. The mac restarts fine, but nothing else on the reinstall. I have tried the various combinations of pressing "c" etc.

Every time I turn on my computer, iChat opens and logs on and says I'm logged in at 2 different locations even though I know that I am not. I hit 1 to log off the other locations anyways.

OS X :: New Window Keyboard Shortcut Opens Two Windows?
So this is a new thing that started happening, and has got me stumped. When I hit Apple key+N in Safari, a new browser window will open, I will be switched to the Finder, and a new window in the Finder will open up. This new window in the Finder is the Computer window, the one listing the HD, the network icon, and any attached disks. It is not the same window I would get by hitting Apple+N while in the Finder. Only seems to do this while in Safari.

Mac Safari :: Every Link Opens In New Tab Or Window
I'd like to find a way so that every time I click a link in Safari, instead of opening in the current window, it opens in either a new tab or window. I understand that I can hold down "Command" while I click a link and it will open in a new window or tab, and that I can right click or control click and select "open in new window" from the contextual menu, but I don't want to do that. I simply want every link that I click to open in a new window. Every time. I'm willing to dig deep into the system and get under the hood if necessary.
