    I have a question about which running apps are important. Maybe some of the techno geeks here know this. Some running apps which I would like to stop/uninstall but don't know what they do are: PVWmdrmProxy, PVWmdrmService, com.smithmicro.dm, and HTC Sense. HTC Sense sounds important but I'm not sure. Maybe Yeahha or the guy with the midget mad scientist avatar could comment on them? Thanks. :)

    If you want to stop them feel free to, if they are needed they will be started back up. I don't really think there is a reason to stop apps since Android handles memory management pretty well but close what you would like to.

    The 2 PVWmdrm apps you listed I believe have to do with digital rights management for other apps.
    come.smithmicro.dm has something to do with receiving OTA updates (I think) on HTC devices.
    HTC Sense is well sense.
