    I know this is more of an opinion question but what do you think is better....a task killer with auto kill or a manual task killer? I use advanced task manager right now.

    Neither one of those are healthy for your Droid.....

    Advanced Task Manager does both. One isn't better than the other really, it's just a personal preference. Most people don't even use a task killer.

    Well, I didn't wanna come off like a smarta$$ which its easy to accidently do sometimes.....

    But task killers have just seemed to be the direct cause of a significant amount of people's Droid's acting all screwy....

    Also antivirus apps have been known to be just as bad

    Yeah i won't install an antivirus app. The friggin' guys at vzw stores try and push the task killers on you. I don't use mine all the time but it's weird cause sometimes it shows apps on the list that i haven't even opened.

    I know, the system does run some apps outta no where that you never opened or may not have even touched actually....but just let the system do its thing ya know...this is what it was built for....

    And yeah the VZW reps don't know what their talking about half the time honestly......I promise you that you will find more accurate information in this forum than you will at the actual VZW store.....

    FYI, most people use Atro File manager and don't realize it has a task killer (and a fairly good one) built into it. So....
