Hi , I would like to help .
Hi , Login item are found in Apple menu , system preferences , Accounts control panel , Your account . Login items , to remove select and delete.
Also if your running OSX 10.6 , you can right click on an item in the dock , and go options to see remove from start at login , or add etc.
If you dont have right click , hold CRT left click .
ok iTunes helper was checked but iTunes application was not....I unchecked the iTunes hep box....
itunes helper should be in there ok .
I'm still using 10.5.8
unchecking does not stop the login start . That is for hide etc. you have to remove it from the list , the helper should be in there . I will check .
say again.......are you saying : leave iTunes helper checked?
Well I dont have it in there , this end , so remove it .
Checking the box just hides it at login . remove it using delete .
remove it from the login item list .
The function of the tick just hides the app at login .
Hide = you wont see it launch .

Clearing all connections with - , should reset the Macs connections , you will have to add them again after .
as described above .
You may also like to , reboot the Mac , holding shift key on a usb or built in keyboard to do some repairs , a bar will indicate basic repairs , this may also help . the mac will boot after a while please wait , , after the boot ..reboot normally with no shift key held .
when rebooting , keep holding shift key till the bar comes on screen center .
Once booted , reboot as normal .
there is no "Use passive FTP mode" in that list
This should fix the problem .
See under the other tabs in network .
It may be under , advanced , then proxies tab .
You must select the port , Airport etc , to find the correct tab .
There is an FTP Proxy tab....is that the one?
The tabs , each reflect setting for each of the ports , or ways to connect . Ethernet , Airport , blue tooth and so on .
Yes , from OSX version to version the labels change just a little .
It is the same thing . Proxies tab .
In OSX snow , its under Advanced , Proxies
ethernet port did not turn green but the airport tab is still green
Yes your not using Ethernet , so this is ok . Green means connected . Ethernet is a wired connection directly to the router .
If you dont have a cable for Ethernet plugged in , this is ok .
as you have Airport , you dont need this .
ok, ok....so just reboot now?
But still setup will remain , standing by .
Yes hold the shift key till booted , then reboot as normal .

Or I will lose you . :)
