I have tried to cancel out "My Day's appearance at log-in by canceling it out in System Preferences, but it keeps returning. It's not something I want or need on my desktop. Suggestions?

If you want to keep My Day from opening, at the bottom of the My Day
window, click on the right most icon for preferences. Uncheck "open at
login."

Diane: Thanks. I've done that and keep doing it, but each time I boot up the "My Day" window is back and the "open at login" option is rechecked.

Diane,
FWIW, I've tried deleting Entourage 2004 itself from my Startup Items both
that way and by changing my Login Preferences, and I have the same symptom.
Once Entourage or My Day gets into Startup Items, it seems to be hard to
delete.

Open Login Items under Accounts in System Preferences and delete it there.
If that doesn't work, try deleting this preference file in your User's
Preferences folder:

com.microsoft.myday.plist

For Entourage in login items, you might want to delete:

com.apple.loginitems.plist

I had the same problem. I just left it. I'll wait to see if that works.

Thanks, Diane. I may give that a try -- after I finish my taxes! ;-)

Diane:

I deleted "My Day" under Accounts in System Prefs, and I deleted com.microsoft.myday.plist in the User's Prefs list. "My Day" lives on, however.

What else will I lose if I delete the other file, com.apple.loginitems.plist, per your final suggestion? Will I need to reinstall Office for Mac?

Sorry to be handing around yet.///REB

After you delete the login items, did you also select the preference in My
Day not to launch?

If you delete the Apple pref for logins, you will need to enter all your
items again. If you are ever in doubt about a preference, simply move it out
and rename it for the test. You can always put it back.

This problem was driving me crazy. I tried deselecting 'open at login' too but it didn't work so I actually opened My Day, went to preferences. Lo andbehold there was an option to 'open after computer logon that was checked.I unchecked it and am about to restart my computer. Hopefully it will work..
