    Stopping apps from automatically running

    I can't stand it!
    Is there any way, short of rooting, that I can stop apps from auto-starting whenever they choose?
    Even after I stop them, they restart themselves.

    I don't care why they do it either. I just want the option to start what I want to use manually.
    If I wanted this I would have bought a windows phone.
    Not very Linux like.

    I think that you need to root your device in order to get control over that apps.

    Sylvania 7" tablet running Android v2.2
    True, it could be rooted but I would try task killer first and see if that will suffice before rooting. I know because the tablet I use (Sylvania SYNET7) allows me to kill off apps without rooting.
