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?
