Not all services/applications can be disabled through Preferences in your Mac. These startup items is defined in scripts. You can find them in StartupItems folder:

  • /Library/StartupItems
  • /System/Library/StartupItems

You should see some folders which contains the startup script. To disable to specific service, perform these steps in the Terminal and replace <appfolder> with the name of the folder/service:

  1. cd /Library/StartupItems/<appfolder>
  2. sudo touch .disabled

This will create an empty file named “disabled”. To confirm this, open up System Profiler and go to Startup Items and notice that the service is disabled.
