    I this I know what you can do about this select System Preferences on the Apple menu. Then on the Accounts Panel, choose the Login Items pane. Over there Delete Microsoft Office item from the list hope this will help you

    what I can suggest you is If you using the snow leopard it s just easier than that . all you have to do is click on the word icon in the Dock plus hold. That will make a window pop up . just click on the item Click on the thing I have orange item drawn to.

    Just After I have upgrading to OS X Lion, while the Excel for Mac 2011 application starts plus opens a file in the Startup directory, the error message state as the file is already open as well as that reopening will reason some change you made to be useless is showed. It doesnt have any impact whether if the file is save otherwise not after opening. Is this a common problem ? I am opening the similar file I have used for years. Thanks

    I think I can help you on this all you need to do is
    • go to Open System Preferences
    • Account
    • Click on the Login Items tab.

    You be able to see the Microsoft applications listed? get rid of from Login stuff. If you don't see these listed in Login Items, after that a few other app is launching it . You can confirm by Logging out below the Apple in the Menu bar. while you Log in, just hold down the Shift key. See if they still launching? If no, the cause is one of the login items. general reason will be app like , Quicksilver, LaunchBar, iKey, Keyboard Maestro. as well, quite often as soon as PowerPoint starts, it wonít let you close it. If you are seeing a welcome window, there will be the close button on the bottom right. a few users don't see the underneath of the window to notice the shut button.

    I thinks it might be Lion's "Resume" characteristic. If you left something open while you shutting down it will automatically start again where you left the whole thing. So I can suggest that either you can shut down the applications plus save documents or else , just go to the System Preferences and then to the General after that Uncheck Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps .
