Hi Cindy,

Touchwhiz is the default launcher on any Samsung phone. Did you install a custom launcher by chance? Usually that's when you'd get asked for which launcher you want to use, You can set one as default if you don't want to have to select which launcher you want every time.

Whenever it asks you which launcher you want to use, you can select "Always" or "Just Once". If you select always, it'll never ask you again.

On some phones, in Application Manager, you can select all apps and then App info for TouchWiz or whatever alternate launcher you are using and clear defaults.

That will provoke the choice that Mathieu pointed out and you can then put one to bed for good.
