Angry TWLauncher and home page weather widget

Maybe my daughter was right and this is too complicated for me - but I love the phone.

Now getting TWLauncher stopped unexpectedly - force close message.. . All I can see is that my hom page weather/globe doesn't work, and it is irritating to force close. I have read numerous messages about different launchers, rooting (?) etc. and don't know which to try. I'm willing to reset to factory default if I can but can't figure out how to.

I just want it to open - and if it means I shouldn't use an app, so beit. I removed all the apps I had downloaded (3-4) but that didn't make a difference.

Looking for some fairly straightforward advice. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Eileen

Well... Not sure what you have done, but as long as you have not downloaded many things... Than a reset should be a good quick fix. From the home screen hit the menu buttons. Go into privacy... then select factory data reset. Should be good after that.

If the factory reset doesn't work, try this...

from the home screen hit: Menu - settings - applications , then find the two apps/widgets your are having issues with and click on them. From there, you can click "clear data" then force close.

Turn off the phone then back on... this should reset the actual application/widget.

Let us know if anything works!

Default well - another question

The time in my notification bar at the top of the phone is not working - this is the time right next to the battery icon. My weather phone is right but the bar phone isn't working at all. I can't find where to adjust that - if I can.

Thanks again.

Default An update

I tried the clear data before trying factory reset. The widget reset but that's what seems to have locked the info bar on top. I finally did a whole reset and then the info on the bar returned to normal, the time, the battery level, etc. So for now that works.

I didn't have a lot on there so didn't mind losing info and synced back to google.

But if I do get a lot on there and have to reboot - how do I save data? I can't see anything in the manual about it.

Again, thanks for all your advice.

Eileen.

I've been using Launcher Pro and Beautiful Widgets, having no issues with either. If you would like an alternative to consider.
