    That's strange. Are you still using the stock launcher on your phone?
    Boot into recovery mode and wipe the cache partition. To do this, turn off your phone, and then hold power + volume up + home for a few seconds. Now use the volume buttons to navigate the recovery screen and use the power button to select the options.

    i've just done that and chosen wipe the cache partition. but how long would that take because the logo of the recovery android is still there and nothing has "happened"

    Edit !
    i just tried to do it again but when i chose power button it didn't work or anything then i accidentally clicked the SD card 'something'

    i tried again but wipe cache partition does nothing

    It will say failed, but you have to reboot. Not sure why Samsung does that.
