    Anyone notice an abundance of programs starting by themselves since the 2.2 update? I open "Task Killer" and I have got facebook, voice dialer, amazon mp3, etc running. I don't even have these programs set to update. There are about 15 programs running that i didn't even open. This happens about two minutes after I kill the apps.

    2nd, I just killed and then one minute later all the services are running. Annoying.

    I had that with 2.1 - you're not alone.

    You might consider this option:

    http://androidforums.com/support-troubleshooting-evo-4g/141369-how-fix-froyo.html

    It's not 2.2 per se.

    It's that these apps can send something that I think I remember is called an INTENT and that wakes another.

    The problem with the crapware is that it tends to cascade once it gets started.

    I can't guarantee that the suggestion above will help but you might want to consider it.

    The only other real recourse is to wait for them to find a root method for 2.2 and then when you get the chance, root your phone and tear out the stuff that's making your life hard.

    That is exactly what I ended up doing, despite wanting to be "just a regular user."

    Anyway, welcome to the forum!

    Saw that last night and did the hard reset, a couple of tips I overlooked about the stock browser, doing those setting now.

    Cascading, I see that regularly when I use either the Music app, Last.FM, or Pandora. Using any one of those will open all of them (and AmazonMP3 before I rooted) lovely aint it? :)

    Yes I have noticed the same thing. But I also look at Running Services and CPU usage and see they aren't "doing" anything. I would like to do a hard reset but don't know how to back up (yes...I'll go search that) plus I really hate having to re-customize my phone.

    I did these steps to "fix" my issues. some were fixed not all. I still get many programs starting up in the background, Launcher Pro and Handcent are not playing nice with Froyo. I never had any issues with either on 2.1 now they both are buggy even after the hard reset.

    I've read that and they have good points but I know for me personally, with my old Hero and Evo when I start to notice some lag i check the open apps and theres usually a bunch of em. After I kill them the lag is gone so I do what works for me.

    Same here!

    I notice lag, then I go into manage applications and force quite about 6 apps and the lag is gone.

    It even benchmarks faster after I kill the apps.

    I just did a hard reset and now I do not have the problem anymore with the apps starting by themselves. Must have been a conflicting program. I did decide not to re-load certain programs. Handcent text message app for one. I think that might have been the culprit. We will see how it goes.
