    So they disappear even if you just turn off the screen (i.e., put the phone to sleep, not power off completely)? It sounds like it's an issue with the system software, which isn't entirely surprising since it's a clone.

    You could try booting into Recovery and wiping the cache partition, but I can't guarantee that will work since it's a clone: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support

    Another thing to consider is to install an alternative launcher like Nova, and see if that works better for you.

    When I hold the three keys all that appears on the screen is : select boot mode : volume up volume down.
    Recovery mode
    fastboot mode
    Normal mode
    Is there any one of those I choose? , as that's all that is there to choose from.

    oh my bad when I pressed the power key a little android robot icon with a red triangle on its belly appeared then I pressed power again and got these options : reboot system now
    apply update from adb
    apply update from sd card
    apply update from cache
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    backup user data
    restore user data
    B DIDDY , apart from doing the wipe the cache partition is there anything else out of those option I would also want to do . ty

    At this point, no. Just do the Wipe Cache Partition. Then Reboot System Now.
