optimizing apps at startup

When starting up it begins optimizing apps and never quite finishes. After repeating this several times over a few days, it now begins the same way but in a short time it blinks and then goes dark.

Is this a good question?

If you have Zedge, this is what is causing it.

I had also done other updates and thought it was Android System WebView as it started right after that had updated. Then I read it's Zedge and I've had that program for almost 2 years. I had restarted phone and was again stuck on "Optimizing", but for me each time it has been a good 20 minutes.

I uninstalled Zedge and it started right up, no Optimizing. Thanks for everyone who figured this out!

OMG thank you soooo much! It worked and I didn't lose my ring tones! I guess when I'm ready to change them I'll just reinstall then uninstall when I'm finished

Yes, Zedge is the culprit, just uninstall, reboot and you are good to go.

I disconnected the battery, then recharged completely. The nexus started back up like it should. However, the screen does not respond to touch. Yikes! I must have messed something up.

Any advice?
