Help Menu button causing crash

Hi all,

Since yesterday, any time I press the menu button on my Magic I get a pop up saying "the application<whatever> (process <whatever>) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again" and with a force close option.

The prolonged press still brings up the keyboard.

Can anyone offer a suggestion on how to get around this - have tried removing battery/SIM etc and all apps are up to date.

I want to avoid a factory restore if possible but if I do have to do this, can someone point me towards an idiots guide to doing it?

Cheers for your help :cool:
