Default Disappearing clock widgets

Any ideas on how to fix this is much appreciated. Whenever I restart my phone (completely power down) my clock widget disappears. It happens no matter which clock widget I use. Its super annoying because whatever clock widget I use is kind of the main focus of my home page. Its been happening for a month now with no change. I haven't tried a factory reset because I don't want to lose progress on a few games I play. Any other suggestions aside from a factory reset to fix it?

Are you using the stock touch wiz launcher? I've heard once before about this happening and once the user threw on a different launcher (apex or nova recommended) that normally fixed the problem.

Hope this helps you.

Ya, using the stock launcher, not touchwiz even. I prefer things simple. Ill give another launcher a try and report back.

Tested on touch wizard and the clock widget sticks after a restart. But the vanilla launcher does not. Kind of strange.
