    Hello all!

    Other than the (login items) in the (Users & Groups) pane in the (System Preferences) which shows only one item (iTunesHelper):
    Where I can find the other programs and services that starts with system start up and/or user login?
    how can I disable a login Item and how can I re-enable it?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can check the following locations for apps that automatically launch on startup and delete any you don't need/want:
    • System Preferences > Users & Groups > yourusername > Login Items (SL and older: System Preferences > Accounts > yourusername > Login Items)
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > /Library/LaunchAgents
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > ~/Library/LaunchAgents
    • In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > /Library/StartupItems
    After you delete items from the list, restart your Mac and those processes should not be running.
