    I don't know why this is popping up so constantly. When I press the home button it pops up asking if this action should be once or always. I chose always and next time it will pop up again. I tried starting my phone but didn't help..

    Please help this is annoying... Thanks!

    Ok, try this :go to the Play Store and download Home Manager. Not home manager cps. It's free. Set up your Nova launcher through this app.

    Thanks so much! When I tried it, the two icons would not go away.. It would be on my top of notifications bar. So I deleted it. I restored my phone and the problem was fixed. But I updated s finder and now the problem is back. I know for sure it's the s finder emergency update that is causing this issue.

    Not sure what I should do now.

    Maybe I will try to download home manager again.

    If you want to remove the Home Manager from your notifications, just restart. The app will be removed from notifications, but remain in the applications folder.
    Select Nova launcher as default, and select "auto kill" for TouchWiz, and Kid's mode (if you have it installed)

    Guys, I MIGHT HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION.

    Uninstall the latest search for Google Search (11/15/2013) - It is very unstable. When you hit the Google search bar and then the home button on some your Android devices, it will prompt you for the zillionth time "continue using action as..." where you'll have to select a launcher. I just uninstalled the latest update and it fixed it for me (at least for the time being). No more prompts - Touchwiz is stored as default launcher.
