Hi exmix, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums! I've already seen a few of your posts, I hope we get you up to speed a bit :wink: sagirfahmid3 gives a good list of what can be disabled, though note that mintUpdate is the Update Manager and disabling that means you don't get an alert then there are security updates to install for your computer (the little shield icon on the panel). Recommend you leave it. I have a list of services you can disable here: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=106417&p=600177#p600177

Be sure also to check out the Community website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas). You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint.
