My notes on startup items may be old, but here's what I have on places to look for things that may invoke processes at restart:
Items in /Library/LaunchDaemons and /System/Library/LaunchDaemons load when your Mac starts up, and run as the root user.
Items in /Library/LaunchAgents and /System/Library/LaunchAgents load when any user logs in, and run as that user.
Items in /Users/your-username/Library/LaunchAgents load only when that particular user logs in, and run as that user.

> Hello All,
> Spotify runs automatically upon a restart. I checked my System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login Items and it isn’t listed for my account. It must be starting itself in a surreptitious manner. I could just uninstall it, but would like to know what is going on. I researched this a few months ago, but didn’t find anything. Any ideas?
