This started a few days ago unexpectedly. I hadn't installed anything or made any changes. Whenever I start a Google app (like Hangouts) I get this message. I tap OK and then the app works. But the next time I start the same app, I get the message again.

I've tried clearing the cache for Google Play Services and Google Play Store. I tried Uninstall Updates for Google Play Store. Uninstall Updates is grayed out for Google Play Services though. Clear Data is grayed out for both.

Any ideas?

Update
It appears to be only Hangouts and Gmail that cause the error message popup. I tried restoring a Titanium backup of Hangouts, but it was the same.

The only other thing I can think of is to restore a nandroid backup.

If you have TiBu have you considered backing it all up and doing a factory reset? Not sure if a restore would restore your previous problems as well though. However, maybe a selective restore from TiBu after a factory reset?

This is probably what I will try after trying the nandroid restore. The problem is time, I won't have time to mess with it until the weekend.
