The application (process com.android.vending)has stopped unexpectedly?

Google Play was accidentally uninstalled. I reinstalled it and now get the error message, "The application (process com.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." Is there a way to save my phone? It's running Android version 4.1. I've only had the phone 4 days.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

A preference file or daemon might have been removed when you deleted Google Play. Google Play is installed with OS. Might not be a good idea to delete this App. I would back up my contacts and important information and just hard rest the phone.

Play store can't normally be removed unless root access is granted. If you have root access, just properly install the proper Gapps. Gapps are all Google product apps that are preloaded into a single package for that phone. (They must be installed in recovery.)

If you do not have root access, do a full factory reset.

*****UPDATE*****

For those of you that this does not apply too and your phone was never rooted and is doing this at random, and a factory reset does not work you need to flash a new image to your phone. (ive seen viruses that corrupt the stock rom image so the user could not factory reset to get rid of said virus)

MODEL - PROGRAM

samsung - Kies/kies lite

LG phone - LG PC suite

...more will be added, just google

All you have to do is:

1. remove battery

2. remove sd card

3. put battery back in phone

4. turn on phone

5. reset phone

6. wait till phone is fully reset

7. remove battery

8. put sd card back in phone

9. put battery back in phone

10. turn on phone

And that should do it. the downside is that you might lose some apps you downloaded unless they were on your sd card.

Listen me. The only one efficient option is Reset your device. But before do it not forget to take backup of your important data like contact numbers, pictures etc. For Reset go to Menu -> Settings-> Privacy-> Factory Reset-> press it.... Thereafter your problem will difinitely solve.

Well , actually I too have this problem sometimes ago. I can provide a method, it might also work for you.

Your mobile is a smartphone & working on android, now let's start.

-> Go to "Settings -> (Scroll down a little bit)

-> Application manager or Apps

-> then tap on the menu key(it's on the top right of your screen in new android versions ; three dots) or as

your device suits

-> tap "reset app preferences"

-> Confirm "Reset apps"

-> exit .

It's done .. if it works , good ; no , try searching on internet. :)

Check that you havnt been infected by a VIRUS !

RESETING your device to factory defaults should help you to get rid of a VIRUS, but if you dont know where you infected your device you might get infected again :(

I fixed a couple of these before they all have to do with google play store. Just clear the data and uninstall the updates on the app and you should be good to go.

Steps:

Settings

Apps

Google Play Store
