"Unfortunately Launcher has stopped"
I am brand new to Android and just switched form the iPhone to the Galaxy Nexus. I've had the phone since the 26th of December. Since the first or second day, I keep getting a recurring error.
Everytime I go to my Widgets screen and scroll to the 4th widget screen, a notification pops up saying "Unfortunately Launcher has stopped", then gives me the option to report the error or hit "Ok". Often it simply sends me back to my home screen immidiately. I've reported the error a few times now but it still happens everytime. Because of this I am unable to view my other widgets or move them to my home screens. Could it be due to a widget on the 4th screen that is malicious or corrupted?
Any help or tips would be appreciated.
I'll probably give Samsung a call tomorrow or return the phone to my carrier since it's only a few days old.

Call Samsung right now, I believe they are still open, my wife just called them less than an hour ago.
This is Samsung support;

When I had my Gnex, I had a few quirky issues like that at first as well. Not that exact one, but a few weird ones along the same lines. I did a factory reset and it cleared out most of them. After that, I flashed the 4.0.2 software manually (I realize you might not be interested in doing this since you're new to Android) and had zero quirky software problems after that. Just for what it's worth...

I can't recreate the error, I assume you're running the stock launcher?
What apps do you have installed, a little more information please?
I only saw that issue with a beta version of Trebuchet launcher. You didnt install anothet launcher did you?
