    When I tried to go to "Settings", it will launch and exit, in like 2 seconds, so short that I can't even change anything. I downloaded some Quick Setting/Smart Setting Apps but still couldn't go into setting from such Apps.

    I don't remember since when I got this problem,and can't remember what I've last did to get into this problem. Is there any way I could solve this Settings problem without doing a factory reset.?

    Thank you for your help! I've done based on the guide.I could get into Settings Once after that,it stays for like 40 seconds and exited automatically.After that I couldn't get into settings again.However if I restart the phone, I could get into Setting Once again.

    Are you rooted or unrooted? If you're rooted and have installed a custom ROM, that could always be a potential cause of a problem.

    If you're unrooted, then it's important to know if there are any other apps that might interfere with the Settings menu. You said you installed some kind of Quick Settings app--was this before or after the problem started? Try booting into Safe Mode--if the problem doesn't happen, then it's some 3rd party app you installed that's causing problems; Samsung Galaxy S III - Enable and Disable Safe Mod... - Mobile Product Support Forums

    Thank you for taking time to reply. I think I've managed to solve the problem. I uninstalled Android Assistant and Advanced Task Killer,the Settings seem to be working now. These 2 Apps were installed long time ago,when I just got the phone,probably it's their updates that is causing problem. Anyway,I really appreciated your help, and I think the rebooting into recovering mode does help too.
