I have had my Archos G9 (8 inch) for just over a year and until recently had no real problems with the tablet itself (have had to replace power cable though). Recently it has begun randomly freezing/crashing for no apparent reason. Also i have been unable to sucessfuly update the OS - they download but then wont install.
I am starting to think the two problems are related, that without a required update the OS 'fails' in some way. Either that or the OS has become corrupted.
I also have problems with apps, some which worked fine before now are either failing to load or become unresponsive after a short while. Sometimes apps i no longer want cannot be uninstalled.
What can i do to put this right? Will i have to restore the tablet to factory settings or is there something less drastic i can do?
I was also wondering about the cache (internet, temporary files etc). On a PC this needs regularly cleaning but on a tablet running android there seems to be no way to do this (assuming it needs doing on a tablet). I did install a cleaner app but it doesnt seem to do any good/will not work. I am guessing a cluttered cache could also cause running issues with the OS?
Can anyone help please?
