    My macbook is starting to get slow every start up. I'm checking my Login Items and found these that I dont have any idea if its system related

    StatusMenu (All Users)
    CheckUpAlert
    iTunesHelper

    If I delete those would it mess up my system? And can there be another cause for it to start going slow?

    iTunesHelper is you want iTunes to recognize devices. The others you don't need.

    How much ram do you have?
    How about harddrive size and free space?

    I had that problem and the cause for me was the permissions. Some permissions were corrupt on the startup volume. This fixed it.

    Put your OSX disk in and click on disk utilities. Then click on verify/repair permissions. You can also verify/repair the disk itself to check for any errors..
