I feel your pain...
Darn thing is driving me crazy...
Even if I kill all apps running in the background, they come up again...
And why does Windows Live is always running if I never use their Messenger?
I need a way to run what I want to run, not what the phone thinks I should run. I come from the BB world, this is my first Android phone, and I don't find it very logical.
Does anyone recommend some reading so I can understand the OS a little better?
