    I have done factory resets in the past but that only seems to last for so long before the problem arises again. So, I was thinking of rooting the phone and see if this would be a better and more permanent fix. I am VERY new to this and have never tried rooting a phone before.

    Unfortunately, every site I've visited tells you to download this file, VS990 Root .Zip. However, every time you click the link, I get a 404 not found page.

    What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to get the file needed? Does anyone have any other advice they can provide?

    You shouldn't need to root it, and you certainly shouldn't need to factory reset it that often.

    Go to the XDA Developers site and search for root (your carrier name) LG V10 and you'll find all the help you need. I can't link to it here because I have had been told not to post links like that here in the past. There is a different root method for each carrier.
