    i'm facing the problem that i want to prevent some other app's from starting/running.

    Using the OperatingSystem-library for finding unwanted processes/services is not working because killing such a process is not working.

    An alternative solution might be using the standard app manager for hiding the unwanted apps.

    However, in order to prevent a user for switching the unwanted app back to on, i need a mechanism to prevent that. An nice way of doing that would be to, after i've set up the Phone, prevent the standard app manager from running again.

    Is there a way of doing this or are there alternatives?

    Thanks in advance,

    Not that i know of... Maybe it is possible if your device is rooted. But on a normal device you are not able to block any other app.

    as an alternative, but probably facing the same problem, overwrite the file containing the settings of the settingsprovider in the system?
