    Hi Oscar, and welcome to Galaxy Forums!

    I'm not a technician, by any means, but try this first - go to Settings/ Applications/Running applications and find twlauncher (I'm not familiar with that particular launcher, but there are many on the market). Try to fnd the command to clear cache. You may need to stop it first. After clearing the cache, reboot and see if that solves your problem. If not post back here and one of our Rescue Squad guys will give you a hand.

    HTH!

    TW Launcher is Touch Wiz Launcher, the "default" launcher on some Samsung Tablets. Have you recently rooted or added a different launcher?

    If you are stock then you can perform a factory reset from the recovery menu. Volume up+Power button+Home key at the same time until it reboots. Selections are made with the home key and scrolling is done with the volume keys.

    This will wipe your phone however.

    If for some reason you end up getting into your settings app before restoring you can reset TW by selecting Settings, Applications, Running Services,All, TWlauncher, clear data.

    If your computer recognizes your phone when you plug it into it then I would create a backup in Samsung Kies first.

    I had exact problem, was able to receive calls/txts but unable to access anything even after try several things from reading on line and videos. Here is how I resolved my issue

    (1.) Sent txt to my phone with following https//playstore.com (since i couldn't access internet, but was able to click on link when I received the txt)

    (2.) Search for and installed Launcher Pro and........ THAT TOOK CARE OF THAT!!!!

    That was after searching and trying for two days, I didn't want to reset to factory and lose any info, glad I waited
    HOPE THIS HELPS
