How we can manage the applications which will start after root login.
first DO NOT login to the gui as root !!!
a remote ssh login as root to administer the remote install is fine .
( unless you are sitting in front of the computer and will NOT be remote logging in )
then disable "remote login "
you left out some very needed information
WHAT programs ?
are they deamonized ?
or just programs you want to start up on boot
