    Question Mac Cleanup
    I was learning how to clean up my mac from this article on Lifehacker (love that site) and I noticed when going into login items under system preferences/user accounts there is something called "profile reminder" and was wondering if I can get rid of this on my startup? Thank you for your help on this

    What OS version are you running? I have 10.6 and no such item so it can't be essential. Anyway, have you tried selecting it and then hitting the minus button in the bottom left?

    EDIT: Not very bottom left though, just below the list on the left.

    I am using 10.7.3 and yes I have checked the box to the left to hide it but was just wondering if I even need it in that list for startup....thanks

    I did not say tick a box, I said click the minus botton
    I don't really think hiding it will result in any performance gains. Also, I don't think Apple would allow something that is essential for the system to be in there, probably it is just for 3rd party apps. Especially with Apple hiding the Library and their move away from unwitting users mucking things up.

    So all in all, I think you should be safe. As to how much it will actually help? I'm not too sure.
