    I would like to view, remove and add startup items that begin when Mac OS X loads. How would you do this? (Maybe without a program?)

    I searched the MacRumors Guides and haven't been able to find anything that answers my questions.

    Thanks!

    It is under the Accounts settings in System Preferences. There is a tab called "Login Items".

    Aren't there other things that startup? I already checked Login Items but I thought maybe there was some program like "Startup Inspector" or MSCONFIG for Mac OS X that allows you to optimize your system in regards to every component that loads.

    All the system's start up items (as opposed to login items) should be located in a folder named StartupItems in your hard drive's library. :)
