    There is probably already a thread for this but I don't know what to search to find it. Apps are running even after I close them with advanced task killer they reopen. Is there a way for me to stop this. Thank you.

    Just ignore it. Android does not really need tasks to be killed constantly. It does quite well on its own. Especially if its running 2.2 or newer.

    just ignore it..

    yes.. it might help with some apps..
    the ones that need a lot of mem space. (big games)
    it will load a little slower... but android will take care of it.. and get you more mem.

    in 99% of the time.. no difference.
    you are still stuck in the Dos way of doing things with mem.

    I'm not interested in getting into the the urinal battle of task killers, so I put some links below to some information about why task killers are not necessary in 2.2 and up. While they do have a function in some instances, most users don't understand the damage they can cause by constantly killing tasks. Trust me, I was one of those with a "kill all" widget on my home screen until I learned more about how android works. It's a definitely a paradigm shift, but well worth learning about.

    Please read this article it's very insightful.
    Here is another article that may help you kick your task killer addiction. :cool:

    Coming from windows mobile, the desire to kill every app when I was done using it was a hard habit to kick. I now trust that android knows what it's doing and no longer worry about it.

    Ditto. I had researched and found that it was detrimental to use the task killers--that they in fact make your phone slower, so I never installed one. My husband did, and he ended up removing it for that very reason.

    Above posts are correct But there are some apps out there that can cause other programs to run for no reason such as the Pervert Tracker and Family Tracker that make others run when not needed such as Maps and Lattitude. Dont install crap not needed is my advice.
    I do know all that crap running will eat your battery up. I cleaned up my wifes Dinc and now she makes it thru a day on her bat.
    I also noticed that some downloaded programs will install multiple programs. So if you dld something check to make sure other stuff is not installed too. :)
