Stop Smartboard from starting at login

It's a bit of a pain that SMART buries the startup commands in the /Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist file. But, thanks to the defaults command, this doesn't have to be hard to fix. Open the and type:

defaults delete /Library/Preferences/loginwindow AutoLaunchedApplicationDictionary

You could also type these commands into the to create a file that is runable with double clicks:

echo defaults delete /Library/Preferences/loginwindow AutoLaunchedApplicationDictionary>>~/Desktop/"remove smart startup item.command"|chmod 775 ~/Desktop/"remove smart startup item.command"

You can then rename the file and distribute it to users.
