    You're fighting a losing battle. You can go into Settings and go to Apps and start stopping running apps, but the Android OS is designed to have frequently used apps in a kind of "standby" mode to speed the loading of them when you DO want to use them again, so after awhile, the system will revive the apps you just stopped.

    Yes, the apps running on android phones without permission are very distracting quite times. I was facing the same issue on my android phone .
    Please, follow these instructions to resolve your problem.
    1. Open the App Drawer from your homescreen and choose Settings. Alternatively, ICS devices also have a quick shortcut to settings from the notification bar when pulled down from the top.
    2. Once you’re into settings, choose ‘Apps’ from the list there.
    3. Here, you will see three tabs on the top namely ‘On SD Card’ , ‘Running’ and ‘All’ .
    4. Tap on All and you’ll be taken into the screen displaying all the installed apps on your phone along with default stock apps of Android.
    5. Choose the app that you want to stop and you’ll get two boxes named ‘Force Stop’ and ‘Disable’ .
    6. Tap on the ‘Disable’ button and a warning notification pop-up box might come up asking if you’re sure in executing this action. Tap ‘OK’ .
    7. Now the app is disabled and is pushed towards the end of the list. To enable, choose the app again and choose Enable.

    Not every device has disable feature, so you can 'freeze' the apps if you've rooted your phone. That will not delete the apps, but will prevent them to function. One of the easiest apps to freeze other apps, to use is App Quarantine.

    I don't recommend using one.
