    For the Touchwiz problem, try this:

    Go to Settings / Application manager; scroll all the way to the right (to the "All" tab), then scroll down until you find Touchwiz. Tap to open, then tap on the clear cache button. See if that resolves things.

    If the phone keeps freezing, you may need to do a factory reset. Unfortunately, sometimes the OTA updates don't go smoothly, and cause problems after they're complete. A factory reset will almost always clear these things up.

    First though, read through these threads. You may find someone else has posted something that will solve your problem:
