programs and windows launching on bootup


Hello All:

When logging on (RH 7.3 using kde) I get a whole bunch of windows and programs running that I always have to close.
What do I do to avoid this occurance?
What file do I edit?

Please let me know.

You must have it set to restore last session, just go in the control panel and turn it off.

Can you be more specific? Do you mean control "center"?

If so, where exactly, in control "panel" and what, exactly, do I do?

Yes, the control center. Sorry about that. To be more specific, it's in the session manager under the KDE components tab. Hope this is more helpful.

Yes, the box
"Save session for future logins"
is not ticked, but probably was at one time.
So, what do I do to restore it the way it was out of the box more or less. What drives me crazy is that there is an instance of kppp that is running in the background, unseen, so that when I try to access the internet I get a "Question 2" or a 2nd iteration of kppp.
I want a tabula rasa, a blank slate when I boot up.
Isn't there a file I'm supposed to edit?

Try setting it to start with empty session. Should give you what you want.

ok. The windows are gone.
However, there is a strange anomaly and that is that kppp is running and when I type "top" (as su) at the command line I cannot see the pid.
Very strange.
I know it's running because I get to see the actual window AFTER clicking the logoff button.
It's pretty distressing, really.
So, again, I know that there's a file somewhere that one can edit to boot up cleanly.
What is it?
