The Process Has Stopped: Possible Solution To This Error

gapps has stopped error 1

This is a more annoying problem than a major one, but one that definitely needs to be solved. And it is difficult to use our smartphone or tablet if that irritating message “the process has stopped” constantly appears on the screenIt is a problem that mainly affects Android devices. Here we will see how it can be solved.

It is not that we have done something wrong, it is simply one of those errors that can appear simply by using our phone. The applications fail and we find the anonying message to each action we try to perform.

Luckily, this is a relatively easy issue to fix. That is, it will not be necessary to visit a specialist or a technical service, we can take care of it ourselves. There are several ways to do it, we present them below:

Solution 1: Clear the cache process has stopped

The first thing we must do is to get rid of the error is quite simple. Since the message always appears when trying to open an application, it is logical to think that the origin of the problem is in the app’s cache. Thus, it can be deduced that clearing the cache solves it. These are the steps to follow:

  1. First of all, we go to “Settings”.
  2. From there we open the “Applications” menu and select the specific application in which the problem occurs.
  3. Finally, in the “Storage” option and press the “Clear cache” button.

This method will have to be used in all apps where the error occurs. If after doing this the problem persists, we will simply repeat the process, but in this case were the error continues, kindly  “Delete data”.

Solution 2: Force stop downloads

it is worth trying to act on a specific application: the “Download manager” or “manager”. This is what we should do:

  1. We go to “Settings” .
  2. We open the “Applications” menu , where we select the “Download Manager / Manager” app .
  3. Within it, we choose the option “Force Stop”.

With this it is very likely that the error stops, after which we will be able to manage the downloads normally again.

Solution 3: Uninstall The App And Reintall It

If the previous methods have not worked and we continue to see the message “the process has stopped” on the screen, try this method. One way to end these types of root problems is this: uninstall the conflicting app and reinstall it.

The truth is that it is not a very sophisticated solution, but according to most users, it is undoubtedly the most effective. It is very rare that the same errors that give rise to the error are reproduced in the new installation process.

Solution 4: Reste Application Preferences

But in the rare event that the above solutions don’t work (highly unlikely), there is still a way out. This consists of restoring the preferences of the application where the source of the error is. In other words, return it to the original “factory” settings. This is how it can be implemented:

  1. We go to “Settings”.
  2. Next, click on the icon with the three dots that appears in the upper right part of the screen.
  3. In the next menu, we select the option “Reset application preferences”.

It must be said that this is a radical method, since it eliminates any customization that we could have made in the app. As it wipes out everything, it will also eliminate the error message, which is after all what we want to do.
