Every time after I login into Ubuntu
5 folders from the same path (/usr/share/applications) are opening automatically
I searched in Nautilus Help and I couldn’t find anything related to my issue.

How to close multiple nautilus folders that are opening automatically after login?

Sorry but I already check that and it's not checked.. It seems it something kept in memory so I have to purge/clearcache it from somewhere else – Denja Jan 8 '11 at 17:47
You'll have to uncheck that after you close all the applications and folders you don't wnat to open on boot; then uncheck and click "remember currently running applications" – dag729 Jan 8 '11 at 19:25
