    I was using my Ipad about 40 minutes ago, put it down and when I picked it up again all my icons had gone from the front page and it seemed frozen. The only thing that is working is SIRI. I asked him to open several of my apps including safari and he says he can't open it, or facebook, or anything else.

    How on earth do I put this right. I am quite a newbee to ipads (in fact I don't know if its an ipad 2 or 32) so I am hoping if anyone knows the answer, the remedy is easy to follow and it is universal to all ipads.

    Sounds like a restart or reset is in order, if you haven't already tried them.

    The Usual Fixes

    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app:

    iOS 6: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app.

    iOS 7: Double tap the Home button to get the multitasking display. Swipe up on the problem app's thumbnail image (not the icon).

    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Reset All Settings: Another, somewhat more drastic thing you can do is Reset All Settings. You'll find this under Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. It won't erase any of your content, apps, or accounts; but you will have to go through most of your other settings and re-tweak them back to your liking.
