    I got the Skyrocket last week and it's awesome but I have a problem. When I connect it to my PC my PC tries searching for the drivers but it fails to do so. It then opens an installation wizard that tells me to install a CD with the drivers. I downloaded the required Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers but I don't know how to use them. I'm coming from an old LG Invision so I don't know much about android.

    Also, when I go to Settings/Applications/Running Applications it shows me a lot of things running. Many of them I don't even use so I don't know why they're open. When I attempt to stop them it says that stopping the application may cause problems. Should I just leave them running?

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums, Bill! :)

    If you download and install Kies form Samsungs website it will include the drivers for your phone.

    As to the "running" apps. Leave them alone. Most of the memory management process in Android is outlined in Why You Don't Need a Task Killer.
