Uncheck those apps you don't want to kill (such as Advanced Task Killer and some system apps) and proceed to tap the button indicated 'kill selected apps'. it will then kill all applications checked.
2. Advanced operations
If you don't want to kill any app, you can tap it on the running applications list. Its box will then turn to grey.

Some apps will boot once you turn on your phone or will be invoked by certain events.

Ignore list is present for you to indicate those apps you don't want to kill. If you long press on the app listed on the main screen of advanced task killer the menu will pop up, then you can select 'Ignore' and the application would be moved to the ignore list. When you tap 'Kill selected apps', it remains unaffected.

The ability to kill apps automatically.

- Aggressive: Kill the apps running in the background and apps that aren't running.
- Crazy: All apps except for apps you are using.
