    apps running, but don't use?

    Okay, so what do you do if the X is running stuff you don't need going. I tried closing these things and it says "started by app." So unless I'm buying something, why would I need PayPal running? Also Slacker radio starts when I reboot. I also don't need news updates or Facebook updates unless I want to view them. How can you shut all this off so that you only access it when you want to?

    Don't worry about the apps that appear to be running in the background.
