I restarted my phone this weekend and I now have this screen when I wake up the phone. I can't figure out how to disable it and it's driving me nuts. Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

These are not widgets, your lock screen has been replaced by a third party one. You'll need to uninstall whatever app has taken over it, most likely your most recently installed one.

Those are called widgets. You can add or remove them by selection the one you want to remove by hold it down for a few seconds. Once the widget is selected, there will be a red X in the upper right corner. Press it and it will be removed. Hope this helps.

Thank you, thank you!

I deleted my recent apps and it went away.  I don't even know which app it was because I just deleted away.
