Same problem on note 2. Solution: i went to Settings->Application Manager->All tab. I scrolled to the bottom. Download Manager was diabled. I enabled it.
You just saved my life. Thank you very much. I was gonna consider a data wipe but it was as simple as that, as I previously remembered manually cancelling a download when I was in a poor signal area. Immediately this "unfortunately process com google" error message appeared and I was trying to find a way to undo it.
Thanks for this solution. Just enabled my download manager and my phone's perked up tremendously.
It was sluggish and slow after I had stopped a download, and this message kept popping up, freezing the phone every now and then.
Am not techy so this solution really really helped.
i have the same problem but it happens when i receive a message in google talk, have tried all these suggestions even done a reset to factory settings and still happens.. any other ideas?? got the samsung galaxy s3 mini
Had same problem on S3 LTE. Solution worked. Thanks very much
I had set a data limit, I think as the phone reached this it automatically disabled the Download Manager if that helps anyone.
Cheers again great site
I tried everything in this forum, and all suggestions from a half dozen other forums, and nothing worked for me. BUT, I figured out a solution that did finally, if the problem persists for anyone else like it did for me (No factory reset required!): First, remove your Google account (no big deal, you can sign back in in a few minutes). Then, go to Settings>Apps>All> Scroll down to the G's until you get the first thing that has Google in it's name. The first one on my phone (galaxy nexus, CM) is called "Google Account Manager". Click on it and hit "Clear Data". Repeat this process for everything Google in the list. Now sign back into your Google account. You should never see that message again! This worked for me, hopefully it will for you too, if any of the previous suggestions haven't already.
It is most likely a Samsung proprietary spin on the Google app, that is what happens when the big phone companies lock the systems and proprietize otherwise open source software (Android and Google are built on Linux open source but the Samsung Galaxy SIII isn't AOS (Android Open Source)), then Samsung pass it on to customers without working the bugs out first. It is a sync problem, Samsung needs to fix it as well as the other mfg's out there with same problem, asking Google to fix all the different phone company's screwing with the Google software probably won't get it fixed anytime soon.
