System Preferences - Sharing Panel shows after startup, why?

Advertisement

Systems Preferences > Sharing opens after startup but is not requested as a Login Item;
this annoys the **** out of me.
What I have tried:
     repair permissions,
     re-install mavericks
     reset permissions on Sys Pref > Sharing to no sharing
     reset permissions on "Get Info" panel
     Restart and Shut down
None of these fix the problem.
It seems to be account related; other accounts do not have that problem.
What is the simplest method to set up a new user and transfer all my data to that user and get rid of the old one?
Is there a better way to fix it without setting up a new account?
It drives me nuts.

Hi,
I cleared the System cache using OnyX and that fixed the problem.
Thank you all,
