    Welcome to the forums.
    Try rebooting into recovery and clearing cache.
    Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    It's always a good idea to perform a Factory Reset after a major update, so that would be my suggestion (after the cache wipe, which is also important).

    Obviously you'd want to backup your data, which may be difficult if the phone reboots every few minutes. You could try using the Kies software (you'll need Kies v3 if your phone has the 4.3 firmware) to individually backup items, rather than backing up the whole shooting match at once - that may allow you to get what you need.
