I want my laptop to boot into a clean desktop with nothing running (apart from necessary background processes, obviously). But every time I reboot, transmission, search monkey, sometimes firefox open up, even if I shut them down before shutting the laptop down. How do I get a clean start up? Many thanks!
In response to this being a duplicate question:
I've checked the other question and I have a different problem. It Looks like my laptop is booting into a saved session or something. I managed to find the startup applications menu and the ones Are starting up aren't in there. Is it possible that I saved the session a while ago and for some reason it keeps booting into it? If so, where would this session be saved, and could I delete it?
After a bit of thought it could be possible that the session it loads into is the first one after I do a systwm updat. If not it as was at least 4 months ago...
A side thought could be that Ubuntu doesn't shut down properly, and boots back to to the lass session it did. I do get a lot of system crash warnings and things when I boot up
