Start-up processes in OS X - Mac Applications & Software

I stumbled across a way to kill processes that run automatically at start up (like the "Comcast Wizard") but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was. I know it was part of OS X, but that is about it. Can anyone jog my dust memory?...

    Default Start-up processes in OS X

    I stumbled across a way to kill processes that run automatically at start up
    (like the "Comcast Wizard") but I cannot for the life of me remember what it
    was. I know it was part of OS X, but that is about it.

    Can anyone jog my dust memory?

    Select the items you do not want to launch at your login and select the '-' button.

    If you want to disable Login Items for just one login, hold down the
    Shift key at login (start holding it down before hitting Return after
    the password, and continue holding it down until the desktop is
    displayed and disk activity ends). This should keep must third-party
    processes that normaly start at login from starting.

    Many thanks! I had driven myself to the edge madness trying to find where I
    had seen that.
