    I was curious if an app was out already that did this or if it was even possible to do this.
    What I want to do is have an app or task manager kill a single app as soon as it starts up.
    Example: I have a Samsung phone and don't really like touchwiz launcher, not touchwiz settings because in order to disable that you have to use a rom and to do that you need root..... So I am referring to the tw launcher. Instead I use like Nova or apex, etc....
    When using another launcher the tw launcher stays running. I can kill it but it just starts later. The reason I want to kill it is when running 2 launchers I've gotten at times lag and stutters. This is why I want to keep the tw launcher process killed.
    The closest I can get is when I turn the screen off, then when I turn it on again it kills the process, but sometimes it restarts while the screen is on.

    So all that said I am basically looking for an app that will kill said process as soon as it starts up.
