    I am not sure how this affects my memory and battery life but it seems that once I hit and kill the apps that are showing up in Adv Task Killer they reappear over the next several minutes without me touching my phone. Here is a list of apps I kill and they restart:
    Visual VM
    Not Call Log
    TiKL- Touch to talk
    Voice Search
    Atro
    EasyTether
    Assistant Free
    Skype mobile
    They all seem to start back up. Anything I can do about it. Should be concerned about battery life or anything.

    Any imput would greatly be appreciated

    +1, don't obsess over those apps. Look in Menu, Settings, About Phone, Battery Use, and see that those apps don't appear on your battery consumption screen. Don't worry about it.

    Might give you a bit of insight as far as how the memory works and why task killers are ineffective.

    I did write this, I think it was written by Martin030908.


    Android was designed from the ground up as an operating system (OS) for mobile devices. Its built-in application and memory-management systems were engineered with battery life as one of the most critical concerns.
    The Android OS does not work like a desktop operating system. On a desktop OS, like Windows, Mac OS X, or Ubuntu Linux, the user is responsible for closing programs in order to keep a reasonable amount of memory available. On Android, this is not the case. The OS itself automatically removes programs from memory as memory is needed. The OS may also preload applications into memory which it thinks might soon be needed.
    Having lots of available empty memory is not a good thing. It takes the same amount of power to hold "nothing" in memory as it does to hold actual data. So, like every other operating system in use today, Android does its best to keep as much important/likely-to-be-used information in memory as possible.
    As such, using a task manager/killer to constantly clear memory by killing apps is strongly NOT RECOMMENDED. Generally speaking, you should only "End" applications if you see one which is not working correctly.
