    Default process com.google.process.gapps has stopped

    Hi

    My GF has got a new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and it was working fine running on Android 4.0.1 with nothing installed, I then upgraded to Android 4.1.1 and installed about 20 apps from the Play Store and now I get this message on almost everything I open "unfortunately the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped" - clicking OK allows to continue but its constantly popping up - now last night when I was faffing with it I STOPPED some apps from running, specifically google maps as it had a few things running, I thought it would be for that session only but looks like it may be related and that it stops them permanently.. I have followed advice on another thread and looked at the Download Manager but thats running (as many other people found it too be that) and google maps appears to be ok too?

    she doesnt know about it yet and Iam stressed out too the max!

    can anyone help with this?

    also it seems to be a little unresponsive at times, Iam wondering if its the 4.1.1 update?

    thanks

    What fixed it for me on Samsung galaxy S3 running Android version 4.1.1 was:

    Settings > Application Manager > All > Locate Download Manager (will be at the the bottom of the list when it's disabled) and enable it

    Reply to the thread if it fixes it for you.

    Hi, like I said in my first post I already tried that but it was already running... I did manage to fix by uninstalling Avast (and rebooting) - I also cleared the Google Maps cache but I dont think it was that - so looks like it was Avast.

    I understood what you meant by reflash to stock - theres a backup and restore option in settings...i take it thats the flash to stock option? - but I dont know what "root it via odin" means - probably something along the lines of somehow getting root access so I can install the latest Google Apps...dunno what CM10 is though?

    anyway it seems to have stopped after I carried out the following:-
    Uninstall Avast Mobile Security
    Cleared Gmaps cache
    reboot

    I think it was Avast.

    we still have had the odd one since then but very rare... infact havent had one for 2 days nearly

    Uninstall the last few apps you put on before it happened and reboot - it seems to happen when apps crash or conflict. for me it was Avast Mobile Security

    Hi. I have a HTC One X and my phone gives me the com.google.pro...... error on a regular basis. I have tried the download manager fix, but it still isn't working. The phone has also recently been upgraded to Android os 4.1.1 and the latest HTC Sense version. Another error I encounter is that the Play Store app won't open... Can someone please help me and maybe give step-by-step instructions on how to fix this problem? Thanks

    I have a droid 4. Updated to jelly bean 4.1.2. I can see emojis but cannot send them. Why is this? I did the add on dictionaries method but nothing happened.
