Hi,
I would like to possibly lower upstart load and speed up start-up time on my pc.

I am however afraid to test by myself and have my account hijacked again, because i am not familiar with the inner-workings of Peppermint.

Which from among the app's below i can safely disable (currently all items below are enabled):

1) Peppermint Settings Panel / System / Default Application / Autostart:
mintUpdate
xbindkeys
AT-SPI D-Bus Bus
Power Manager
Network
Fcitx
User folders update
PulseAudio Sound System
Load Input Settings
Fcitx Qt ImPanel
f.lux indicator applet

2) Peppermint Settings Panel / System / Default Application / Launching applications:
nemo
x-terminal-emulator
x-www-browser
xfrun4
pyshot

3) Peppermint Settings Panel / System / Default Application / Core applications:
xfwm4
xfce4-panel
nemo -n
xfce4-power-manager
lxpolkit
pavucontrol
peppermint-control-center
lxsession-logout
mintupdate
ssh-agent
build-in

Please advice.  8)

I wouldn't untick any of those, they all look pretty essential.

Thanks murraymint:

for your comment. I'll keep it then as it is. But i've observed that my Peppermint 7 is getting slightly slower recently on startup. I was wondering if you can kindly tell me what i can possibly do to lower some initial load at startup?  :o

Have you considered getting an SSD (if you're using an old-style hard drive)?
