It is now generally well known in the Android community that task killers do not provide any advantages over the built-in task managing of the phone. A lot of people will start killer tasks that are vital to the phone's operation and may cause other parts to force close. So in my honest opinion, you don't need it.

But if you want to play with it, here are some pointers.

First off, if you downloaded the .apk file, you will need to copy it to your SD card. Go to the Market, and install the app AppInstaller. This will search you SD card for .apk files and give you the prompted to install onto your phone.

When you run the task killer, you will be presented with a list of running tasks (just like in Windows Task Manager). You can kill any task that is running, but like I said previously, killing something vital can cause problems. Kill one thing at a time, and see how it affects your system. Some tasks are necessary and will start back up on it own.

Good luck.

My HTC Hero is starting to overheat without me doing apps are running but the battery constantly is being drained

There is probably something running in the background that you may not know about. Some apps have a tendency of running even if you think you have exited it. I know Skype had a issue where it would not actually stop running even when you exited out of it.
Go to the Market and download an app called Current Widget. It keeps a log of running apps and services and how much current each of these pulls from the battery. You can look at the log and try to pinpoint the troublesome app or service. If it's a app you don't need, uninstall it. If it's an app you need, you may be able to force quit by using a task manager.
Good luck.

My HTC hero will not allow me to delete text messages which is taking up all my memoery

My Hero used to take ages to delete messages and often used to freeze when it was doing it. However now my phone is running 2.1 update it deletes perfectly fine. Check if your phone is on 2.1 update, go to settings, about phone, software informations and it is the firmware version your looking at. If your phone is running lower then 2.1 update then go to settings, system software updates and press check now. If it says there is an update available then download it. Overwise you will have to download an app. The app i suggest is called 1-click cleaner, it allows you to quickly delete all the messages on your phone from the app. Hope this is of help to you.

try downloading GPS Essentials (free) from the market. It has a tab that shows how many satellites the phone is picking up. that usually is what determines the gps accuracy. also remember that the antenna is at the bottom of the phone. right where your hand holds it. This should not affect it but is good to know.

When I go to the internet n copy text, my HTC hero says that it has been copied to the clipboard but the problem is that I don't know where the clipboard in HTC hero is!

I don't think there is an actual clipboard that you can look at by default, but there are apps you can download from the Marketplace that will allow you to see what you have stored there. Just do a search for "clipboard" and try them out. I do not have a recommendation, as I do not have a clipboard app.
Good luck.

Copying pictures with HTC Hero

If your son has his own facebook page then you can go to the apps store and download an app called syncmypix which will download all of your contacts who are on facebook's profile pic (there may be other apps out there that do the same thing, I'm not sure)

I've only tried this recently so not completely familiar with this but think it will only download the current profile pic.

Haven't got my Hero with me right now so can't play with it to see if there's other better solutions.
