    How to customize the Startup items in Mac Powerbook?

    Whenever I open my Mac Powerbook, a number of application starts automatically which slows down its speed. I want to remove some application from the startup but unable to find any way to do the same. I was using windows OS and it was possible to do the same through “msconfig” but here I don’t know. Can you provide some help for the same?

    hello user,
    1.Upgrading your RAM will probably give you the biggest speed increase,because their could be hardware issues for slow down.check that you are not login into many application at a time.
    2. Also check /Library/LaunchAgents/ and /Users/yourusername/Library/LaunchAgents/ for items launching at startup, launch Activity Monitor and change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes".
    3.Also deleting the application,will lead to large amount of time and complex way.
    4.The best way to get away from this is to install "speed up mac" (need is mac os x10.8 mountian lion),so that you could easily remove the application that you don't want.

    thank you.
