Mike--I don't have a zillion files on my sd card. I Have 2 zillion. And I had forgotten about the boot-up search. I'm sure that's it. As for the memory leak, how would I know if pd is running if it's not listed? As usual, something funky is going on with my (now) streak. I'm still trying to figure that out as well as the memory leak. So far, have only a faint glimmer of the source (s) of the problem. (said problem is that the screen frequently stops responding, although the hard buttons still work.) I'm about to freeze or uninstall a whole bunch of stuff until the problem stops, then add the apps back one ast a time. Tedious in the extreme.
