If you believe that an app you've downloaded is what's responsible for the glitches, try starting the unit up in Safe Mode. This will launch it with only the very basic software in the phone (nothing you've downloaded and all setting at the original factory default)
Power the Galaxy Note off.
Press and hold the Power button to turn the device on.
Once you see the animation on the screen, continuously tap the Menu button.
Once the device loads the Android OS, you should see the words “Safe Mode” appear in the lower-left corner of the home screen. (You may have to unlock the screen to see these words.) If you don’t see them, turn the Galaxy Note off and try again.
To get out of safe mode, power the unit off and then on again.
If the unit is still acting up, try resetting it. Just call " *2767*3855# "
