    Is there a way to remove programs from startup? When I turn on my Droid the following apps open and I must use Advanced Task Killer to stop them or it'll run very slow:

    Photoshop.com Mobile
    AK Notepad
    Alarm Clock
    Gmail
    Messaging
    Corporate Calendar
    Visual VM
    Last FM
    Market
    Slacker
    Voice Dialer
    Lookout Mobile Security
    Browser
    Email
    Settings
    Advance Task Killer

    I know that some need to run upon startup, but why Photoshop, Last FM, Market, Slacker, Browser, etc.? Is there any way I can change the startup settings on these?

    Thanks,
    Saner

    I also notice that even when I kill all the tasks, Slacker appears back on the list after only a few seconds without launching it. Is this normal?

    Those music streaming apps (Last.fm, Slacker, Pandora) will stay open if you have them set to "scrobble" your music. Basically they keep a record of what you like so that they can make recommendations to you. A lot of them have this feature turned on by default. I'd try turning it off and seeing if they still sit in the background.
