    I am quite savy with MS Windows PCs, but have thankfully switched recently to Mac in my personal life. I have been trying to learn as much as possible but I am a bit stumped about startup items. I have a Mac Mini that I recently upgraded to 1gb of ram and i am running OS X Tiger 10.4.1

    When I go to apple\about this mac\more info\Startup items it list things that I don't think I really need starting at startup: Apache web server, Remote desktop, etc. Do I need these items and if not how do you remove? I went to System Preferences\Accounts\my user name\then login items but most of those items are not present. Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks I am enjoying every minute of it.

    Ok cool. Good thing that I did not fiddle with it any further.
    Thanks for your assistance.

    Sorry to return this thread from the dead but some of those things you can turn off in sharing pane of system Prefrences if you don't need them. Apache is personal Web Sharing.
