i don't use a task killer. that's why i said no task killer is best. if you read more in the forums, you'll see that task killers are generally bad for android. it will actually make your battery life worse.

and still wondering why you need an antivirus program?

Lookout mobile security scans software for malicious code and has remote lockout, alarm, and locating capabilities. All for free.

Task killers are a no-no.
If you're looking to extend your battery life, read through the thread stickied at the top about battery saving tips.

I like advanced task manager. I know lots of people say they don't help, but I find that they do for me. I don't se a reason for an AntiVirus app though.
