    I downloaded the App Lockbot free. As soon as i did it changed my 7 home screens into 3 screen with no icons on it at all besides messages and the market. So i uninstalled it. Went into settings and chose my saved theme and it will not pull my old theme up...what can I do

    My guess is that you switched from Sense to Home.

    If that's the case...

    Go to Settings>>>Applications>>>Manage Applications
    Find Home and clear defaults
    Exit from there and press the home button. Select the Use by default box and select HTC Sense

    the message i am getting is HTC Sense (process com.htc.launcher) has stopped.

    I can see my task bar so i can get into the applications that are open, but cannot get into the settings at all to do what the208 suggested any other ideas

    Do you have an automatic task killer?

    It may be killing your sense when it tries to open.

    Most people use Sense as the default.

    Go to your gmail account and make sure all your contacts are there. If they are, then they will sync again.

    Can you uninstall your task killer to see if that helps?

    once you start having force closes removing atk will no longer work as a solution. even removing atk might not keep it from force closing if you used the app. best bet is a factory reset and never install atk again.

    i don't use atk anymore cause of this problem. the app creator needs to fix his app cause it's killing more task than you want it too. if you don't beleve me take it out for 3 months and watch most of your woes dissappear. it's not needed anyways. there's no real benifit in having it. it only messes with the built in automatic task killer. then you get people posting complaints about apps that are not the cause.
