    In my phone's bottom tray the Launcher icon suddenly got replaced by Profiles icon. I can not understand how it happened. I rebooted it. Tried hard reset by pulling out battery but of no solution.

    How to get the Launcher icon back....please help.

    I don't know it is related or not : my Wifi internet also stopped suddenly. It shows it is connected ( the wifi icon in notification area shows in gray color), signal strength is very good but can not access internet.

    Please help... I am totally lost

    Do you get an option to change icons if you long press them? If you can tell us what kind of phone you have, we may be able to help you better

    When you say launcher icon, do you mean the app drawer icon? As in, you can't get to your app?

    If you can find the home Launcher app, you may be able to rest it. Try going to settings/apps or manage app/all apps. Scroll down until you see something like Launcher or home Launcher. Select it & select clear cache & data. You'll loose your home screen setup. But it should reset everything.
