    Before you reduce the number of screens, you have to be sure and take all the icons and widgets off your screens FIRST. Had you set Helix as the default home? If so, I'd assume you're stuck in a constant FC loop... search the forum for "helix" and you'll see some threads with similar titles that have solutions in them. If you hadn't set it as your default, you may just have to uninstall and reinstall it. Either way, just make sure to always remove everything before changing the number of screens. If you're still stuck, let me know.

    edit: decided to help out and do the searching for you ;)

    Yeah I had to uninstall it. I guess from when I went from 5 screens to 7 I didn't have to remove everything so I didn't think it really mattered. But now I know. Is it everything or just widgets?

    To be honest, I'm not sure. I get rid of everything when I'm changing mine, but I'm a "rather safe than sorry" type person.

    i'm pretty sure it stated all over the program to remove any icons/widgets only when decreasing screens. something to keep in mind next time.
