Re: Will rooting finally be able to kill programs permanetly?
Some Apps, like the stock email app, run services constantly and "self load" sometimes in order to run automated functions like email polling. The iPhone does the same thing by the way, it just doesn't show in the task manager.
To answer your question, no rooting will not stop it from happening by itself. However, rooting allows you to uninstall system Apps, like the stock email App, that you never use but constantly run services. I've done this, and have greatly streamlined my system and running services. Here's a short (LOL!) list of System .APKs (Apps) that I've uninstalled ...

As a result, my running services list is pretty short, and I rarely have any Apps in my task manager when I don't want them open. Still, for some Apps that poll a server periodically, it's not completely unavoidable.
