It's generally best not to tinker too much with running processes. If they are running, there is most likely a good reason for it. It is better to disable start-up programs that you don't want. The ones I see that you might want to disable are: tracker and tracker applet.

You probably want to leave update manager on. If you turn it off, you will need to remember to manually check for updates.

As for compiz being slow, you didn't specify what you changed that made it slow.
