    yea you can delete those, but some system apps are important for correct function, be very careful, and make sure too backup, better safe than sorry!

    Not vital? Don't use them. Don't like looking at them? Try a 3rd-party launcher where you might be able to hide them. Have to have them gone? Well, with root access you can use a program like Titanium Backup to "freeze" them and then thaw them out if/when you need them.

    As for a task manager...

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NONONONONONONONONONO!!!!!!!!!!! You do not need one and having one will often interfere with the proper functioning of your phone, even possibly costing you battery life. Also not needed: Antivirus apps. The phone has a built-in task manager that works just fine and is optimized for the proper functioning of your phone. Antivirus apps are a waste of battery and CPU cycles, especially if you don't randomly install apps (read, pirate apps) from the web. Stick to the Play Store, AppBrain, Amazon, and other trusted sources and you'll never have a problem as long as you read reviews to know what you're putting on the phone.
