Gnome & KDE sessions autostart items

Always when I logged into a Gnome session, automatically several application started up without me wanting them to start up (two terminal sessions and a nautilus windows). To get rid of them (at least I think so, I will see at the next login), you have to go to Main Menu - Preferences - More preferences - Sessions. Under the "Current Session" tab, one can remove the programs that are automatically started upon login and also specify in which order the programs are started that are started automatically.
