i'm new to the site and also to the android world, my phone runs Froyo Android 2.2. when i launch app killer, it displays a list of apps running (or services?) and it includes, Facebook(not the htc one), yahoo messenger, lookout, fring, sprint navigation, the weather channel, astro, qik and memory booster lite; among others that are ok that are running. note that this are apps i have not lunch some of them i dont mind been running, some of them i installed and i wanted to know how to not make them auto run if not launch by me. thanks.
