Do you want to have control over automatically starting applications?
Autorun Manager (formerly Autorun Killer) is an ultimate tool that lets you disable all the autostarting apps you don't need. Unfortunately this app is misunderstood many times so please read help carefully and/or mail the developer if you have questions.
There are many applications that automatically start when you turn on your device; many of these you don't use or need, they just consume your valuable resources. This app sports a basic mode for the regular users and an advanced mode for power users with rooted devices.
Autorun Manager in basic mode lets you manage applications that start up when you boot your device. Applications are terminated right after they start, but if the application is programmed to restart itself this can fail. Please note that some applications are written so that they cannot be stopped because of the android system design. These kind of applications are marked as 'self-restarter' and are better to be left enabled.
In advanced mode you gain control over all the system-wide events and enable-disable application starts. This is the ultimate solution to control what you want to be started, but you also can break apps, so this feature is only for experienced users with rooted devices.
PRO key app is available on the market!
Donators and PRO users receive additional features:
- no ads
- basic mode's prevent restart feature is selectable
- can block more than 4 receivers in advanced mode
- Chuck Norris mode enabled
If you have questions or face any problems please write me a mail.

First saw this as a way to boot faster, but realized I could make unnecessairy apps not start and keep eating RAM/CPU. Just donated 4 THA POWAH!

Disable app receivers makes this stand out from the rest. Why worry about killing tasks when preventing them from starting when you don't want them.

Like the fact with root you can hard disable admob ads --Learn to use it before you dis the program WORKS GREAT.
This is by far the best app you can find to tweak your Android. The amount of tweaking you can do with the donation version is amazing. ∞ stars from me!

This is NOT a free app, you have to pay, but not thru market. Shady practices...

Rooted user. Works great. To the people who say they can't use the features, try rooting hours phones first :-) reading the description helps too!

Let's say, I want to stop some event-based Gmaps starts. It has 8 triggers/checkboxes and w/o donating, I can disable 2 of them? Well, thanks.. ;)
