After installing few games from humble bundle onto my computer, I noticed my Chromium web browser started to act funny by starting up without being clicked. I reinstalled it, but the issue is not fixed. Can anyone suggest on what I can do next? Update: I looked at Startup Applications settings and I did not find chromium there.

Type in the dash "Startup applications" and then search for Chromium and deactivate it.

If you don't see any app or whatever you looking you should unhide all the applications by typing in a terminal sudo sed -i "s/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g" /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop then check Startup applications again and your desired app must appear. Good luck! –  Diego Jp Jun 12 '13 at 21:42
