With this app modul you could prevent selected apps of running on system startup. Only apps with the permission BOOT_COMPLETED are shown in the list. System apps are marked with an exclamation mark.
To restrict system apps you have to donate.

IMPORTANT
Your device has to be rooted to install the required X-posed framework: http://tinyurl.com/cd46qco

Description for non-developers:
Each app with permission "android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" is placed in a (Windows slang) "startup folder". For my 200 installed apps that are about 33%. On system boot every of these apps gets started. Possible options:
- app shows a notification
- app starts a (hidden) service in background
- app exits again (eg user has set an option)
If you disable an app in the BootManager it does not get that event and is not started at *next system boot*.

ReceiverStop
An app still starts at system boot? Android has many other events which could start an app!
Example: Skype has the permission "android.permission.MOUNT_UNMOUNT_FILESYSTEMS". This means, (again Windows slang) if you insert a DVD into you drive, "autorun" is executed and starts Skype.
Note: As your sd-card is mostly always inserted, this could be used to start apps at system boot....

Other triggers are: A BlueTooth device (dis-)connect, connection type changes (2g/3g/wlan) or power adapter is (un-)plugged.
All these could be restriced with my other app "ReceiverStop". Be carefull and do not disable the wrong.

    Xposed Installer 'error logs' racking up over 100mb per-day.... By a process of elimination I discoverd that BootManager was the cause of the problem. I had BootManager installed on two devices - OPPO Find7 and Asus Fonepad - both had this issue which, if left unchecked, could accumulate in excess of 1GB of data per-week in error logs. Uninstalled, rebooted, and no more error logs.

    Always a must have and can't wait for a Xposed Lollipop update.
