    hey guys. I'm pretty new to the forum. I'm not completely up to date with all the android features as I see a lot of you are as I mostly use the phone for basic multimedia on top of my phones services. I have recently noticed that although I use the advanced task killer to stop apps from running they still continuously turn themselves on and drain my battery. I can't keep watching my phone every second to "kill" them as they pop up.

    I was wondering if there is another way keep this from happening as there arnt any settings option in these individual apps to stop it. or even better.. an app to unistall "factory" apps such as mp3 store n so on. your help is greatly appreciated guys.

    thanks
    Jeff.

    Android != Windows. They're 'running' in the background, but that doesn't mean they're using CPU cycles or hogging memory - the entire structure of the Android OS is designed to fit mobile devices.
