    I have a Task Manager program and when I open it up to see what's running and what Apps I want to kill I see these listed:

    Alarm & Timer (Never used)
    Amazon MP3 (Never used)
    AppBrain
    City ID
    Contacts
    Dialer
    Digital Clock Widget
    Dolphin Browser
    Ebay (icon on desktop but rarely used)
    Facebook
    Gmail
    Live Scores (Installed but not used)
    Mail
    Market
    MediaShare (Never set up any devices)
    Messenger
    Music (I'm guessing this is because I have custom ringtones?)
    News (No news widget installed)
    News and Weather (No news and weather widget installed)
    Quickoffice (Installed but never used)
    settings
    Skype Mobile (Never Used)
    Social Networking (Never Used)
    Text Messaging (Don't Text AT ALL)
    The Weather Channel
    Voice Commands (Never Used)

    Why do so many of these things start themselves back up and is there a way to stop it?

    Dont use a task killer, they just make things worse. Android by itself is VERY good at managing its memory, unlike Windows like you are probably used to. There is no point to have memory (ram memory) going unused, so android will load all of those apps into cache. None of them are actually running unless you click on them to open them, they are just cached. When you use a task killer, All it does is mess with the way android works, and uses MORE battery because the system will just open all those apps back up.

    So dont use a task killer. And please search, as this has been addressed hundreds of times on here.
