If you see one that you aren't using (or that you don't need to have running all of the time) taking up a lot of resources in Activity Monitor (or "top" or "ps"), removing it from the list and restarting may help.

If they are not listed in Accounts/Login Items, that means they are not controlled by the user account settings but are launched by the system, which means restarting the computer would simply launch them again.

Here, I was referring specifically to ones that are login items, which is why the sentence was in a paragraph discussing login items and why it included the phrase "removing it from the list".
