Samsung Galaxy S5 has error message "unfortunately system ui has stopped".  My background has turned black and none of the buttons are working properly.  Have tried restarting and removing battery and still nothing.

Sounds sketchy.
i would back up anything that's important to you, and factory reset.

OH! OH!
Pick me!!!!

Go to
-> settings
-> Backup and Reset
-> Factory Data Reset


But not before you back everything up!
Which will be on the same page as Factory Data Reset =]

I think this has to be done through recovery, you'll loose anything not already backed up.
Source : http://wccftech.com/galaxy-s5-recover... to enter into Samsung Galaxy S5 recovery mode:

Here are the few simple steps to boot Galaxy S5 recovery mode:

Switch your Samsung Galaxy S5 completely.
Boot into Galaxy S5 recovery mode by pressing and holding Volume Up, Home and Power keys at the same time.
Release all three buttons when Samsung Galaxy S5 screen flickers and the main screen of Recovery mode appears.
That’s just about it! The Recovery Mode recovery should now appear on your SGS5’s screen. When you are done, you can simply use the Reboot option to boot the smartphone in normal mode.

Or you can do it the hard way

  1. Turn the Galaxy S5 off.
  2. Now press and hold the Volume up button, the Home button, and the Power button together until you see the Android on screen.
  3. Now use Volume down to highlight the wipe data/factory reset option and press the Power button to select it.
  4. Use Volume down again to highlight Yes – delete all user data and press Power to select it.
  5. Wait until you see the reboot system now option and then use the Power button to select it.
  6. When the S5 restarts it should be completely wiped and ready to set up again.

@taylor
