Default Some apps keep on showing up on my Task Killer!

Hi, I just got my first android device (myTouch4G) 3 days ago!! I love it since the last "smartphone" i had was some sh**ty samsung windows 6.1 mobile phone. that aside, I've been having some problems with apps constantly showing up on my task killer. I have my mail/messages/clock/alarm clock on all the time and as I just leave my phone alone, I notice apps like pandora, yahoo messenger/email, qik video chat, dock panel, my account constantly turning back on...am I doing something wrong here? any help would be great. Thanks!

Ah thanks for helping this nub out! that being said...does that mean having those useless apps i'm not even using(yahoo messenger/email and etc) not a bad thing at all? If I really don't want those to run in the background at all (no matter if it's good/bad for your phone) would the (temporary) rooting to get rid of those app a good option? I just want to see some opinions/advice. thanks in advance

From what I understand, even the temporary rooting doesn't actually get rid of the app. You can "hide" it, but until we get full root, we are kind of stuck with what we got.

I want to add to that...


You are correct and it also makes sure the application does not load up. So with yahoo and other crap that is always running (dont use) you can use the temp root to stop that from happening. Its helped me.

Default thanks :)

Thanks for your responses. When you root your phone (not the temporary one in the future), can you still update your phone normally (as in over the network distributed by t-mo and etc.)? Also are there ups and downs from rooting your phone?
