I have read various answers to problems with Galaxy note 10's, usually finishing with a soft or hard reset. However I have done both to my wife's machine and the problems still exist.

After powering up, I get a box saying 'Unfortunately ALG has stopped working'. Sometimes the message is for Voice memos, or screen swipe.

Needless to say, the machine then doesn't work properly, and on some occasions turns itself off and reboots, but still with problems.

So, given that the official factory resets haven't fixed the problem, even the one from within settings, does anyone have any idea what I can do other than consign it to the great tablet storage depot on high?

This is a software bug so Reflash your firmware via ODIN.
Download the latest firmware and flash it with ODIN . Then go to recovery and clear cache / data to remove any conflict with previous version . This will fix the issue.

Sanjai, you're a star! I downloaded a newer version of the OS, and Odin, ran it as explained, and it works!

Not only does this seem to have fixed the problem, but my wife also now has a more up to date machine to play with.

So, many thanks indeed.

Mike.
