    Is there an app out there that will not just stop a program from starting up but from running at all? I have to continually kill progs like Footprints (or something), Amazon mp3 store, etc.

    I'd like to streamline the phone and only have programs running that are essential.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You would need to have root access on your phone in order to acheive that.

    Just in case...

    I mounted the /system folder and went into apps and created a folder called disabled and moved the APKs of apps I didn't use or didn't want running in there.

    My Amazon MP3 store kept coming up too.

    Does that work with an UN rooted phone? That would be awesome. So many apps came standard that I don't want to use and they seem to be running a lot and hogging space... :)

    There is a program on the market called startup auditor. I've used it and seems pretty nice, I can't really verify if it's had an impact on my performance though.
