    My phone was working fine. Turned it off properly. Switched battery. Turned back on.

    I was at the keyboards setup screen. I pressed skip or next or something and all applications I had download that were running quit one by one. I had a whole stack of "force close" notifications.

    Then all my widgests said "Problem Loading Gadget" on my screens.
    If I open any non original application, it immediately closes.

    I haven't installed any new applications in maybe a couple weeks. I haven't downloaded anything to my phone. Last thing I was doing was on the Verizon wirelss site from my phone browser and text messaging.

    Any ideas?

    Update. Much earlier today I was using a Stewie Soundboard application (sound files from Family Guy TV show). I've used it before...and probably the last app I downloaded. No problems when I used it before.

    The only strange thing is, now I can't find the application at all. I looked in my apps list. In my Manage program app. It's like it's as if I had uninstalled it. Kind of worried it might have been a virus app?

    Oh and some non original apps are working...but most are not.

    Well uninstalled Lookout AntiVirus but no change. Some programs that keep specifically quitting are ColorNote, Taskos, Pandora, and Find My Phone and the Power Controls widget that came with the phone.

    Noticed that if I uninstall then re-install programs they start working normally. But this is treating the symptoms not cause.

    Any ideas on what made these programs which never ever gave me issues suddenly go suicidal on me? All recent installs have been uninstalled.

    I don't think Lookout Mobile will be the issue. Sounds like you have an app that is not playing nice.

    I am going to ask that this thread be moved to the Incredible Rescue Squad section for further assistance.

    same issue, no TK or anti virus at all.

    What caused it? Obviously i have to reload everything.

    Some apps are even gone altogether! Like Angry Birds ... which pissed me off because i got pretty far.

    Was driving and rebooted phone, turned back on and got a bunch of FC's. Reinstalled SmartKeyboard and that works fine now, but didnt have time to try others.

    Any feedback?

    Additionally my battery has been dying like crazy. All the usual settings are off like GPS and auto refresh just like before the issue occurred. Says battery is being used by standby and idle.

    I have the EXACT same issue and it just started today. I had been using my Incredible just fine. Turned it off before I went to sleep last night and now this morning when I turned it on, I am getting TONS of force closes and my Launcher Pro no longer starts (it defaulted back to Sense). Nothing that was on the SD card works and most of my custom settings are wiped out. Just like that...no explanation at all.

    It seems also that the Incredible no longer sees ANYTHING that is installed on the SD card (even though everything is there!).

    If I were to guess, it would seem like the main settings for the phone got totally corrupted somehow and now it doesn't know what's on the SD card at all, nor does it remember the main phone settings.

    This is a complete DISASTER!

    Anthony, wondering if you ever found a solution to this? I don't know what to do at this point besides a factory reset...

    This happened to me a few weeks ago. I determined it was that my Seidio slim extended battery had gone bad. Only fix was a hard reset and reinstall everything and stop using the battery (warranty replacement on the way). Luckily I am rooted so I had a recent nandroid backup so I got back to normal fairly quickly).

    I had to do a factory reset. I bought My Backup Pro before I did it..backup up data only (not programs). Working fine now. Kind of ridiculous though...3rd wipe I've had to do...
