Stop OSX lion from opening all applications after reboot

One VERY annoying feature of OSX lion is the fact it opens ALL applications you ever opened despite the fact you disabled the “Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps” feature in the system preferences.
After some googling around i found a solution that actually works!
Here is the solution:

– Open a terminal
– Run the following commands:

$ chflags nohidden ~/Library/
$ cd ~/Library
$ chmod a-w Saved\ Application\ State/

– Reboot

I hope this helps anybody with the same annoying problem.
