Hello and welcome to AF.

Have you tried restarting your phone to see if the problem is corrected?

Let's cross that bridge when we get to it.
Let's see if there is another way before doing that first if you want.

Are you able to uninstall it or did it come stock? Also, have you tried clearing the cache maybe seeing if that works?

That, and you can go into apps and clear the cache on the ones you are able to do that and after that reset your phone. Did the widget come stock?

Yes. A factory reset might fix the problem, but I would suggest poking around your devices sub-forum and see what you can find out there before doing that if there's no other solution.

I have the same launcher problem after installing the 4.04 update. We did a hard reset, after restoring one page of apps the problem returned. Verizon sent a replacement phone. Restored all my apps. Worked fine for 2 days until I shut the phone off and restarted it. Launcher problem returned. It appears to happen after restarting phone. Other than getting another replacement, and hoping the problem won't appear, but being a cynic I expect the worst, any other suggestions would be welcome.
