    my mac started to slow down so I looked in the activity monitor and noticed a few programs that are taking up memory. the majority of these programs are something to do with printers I rarely use and ink monitoring.

    having looking in the login items in system preferences they are not listed and when you close them they just reopen themselves.

    is there a way to kill these programs?


    thanks

    Have you looked at the preferences of the printers?
    Do they use that much RAM or CPU? If so, how much (MB and %)?
