Hi, would really appreciate some help. My desire was taking approx 40mins to power down so I installed an task killer to show me what was running in the backround. I was astounded...approx 25 apps were continually running in the backround...so by killing these apps...powering down now only take 15secs max...brilliant. However, ive become a bit obsessed with this task killer....i keep checking what is running and there are things on there that i have never used such as "youtube", "news" "talk" etc. Could someone please point me in the right direction about how i stop these apps from running without me requesting them too? Many thanks I know a lot of say task killers are not essential but it has certainly shown me the reason why my desire was running so slowly. Also one more thing, after powering off my phone, when restarting, ALL the apps automatically start running then? Is there a startup menu that can be editted for example?? Thankyou in advance for any help and advice given.
