    So, just recently (as in not even 20 minutes ago) my Galaxy Tab A just started experiencing and issue where when I restart it, or even turn it off and then back on, I get a prompt reading simply "Android has stopped"

    This comes after I had installed a game for all of 3 minutes and then uninstalled it because it kept crashing.

    I have no idea what is causing it and I am unable to find any solutions online.

    Please, any tech gurus, your advice would be much appreciated.

    Guys, I seriously need help solving this issue.
    My online searches are only yiellding solutions for individual apps crashing, not the Android os as a whole.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Hard reset the tablet. Uninstall and reinstall all apps one by one. If this fails backup important files and factory restore the device and set it up as if it were brand new.

    And how does the hard reset differ from the factory reset?

    Unless that's the uninstalling and reinstalling bit.

    Have you reached out to Samsung or Android support?
