I'm trying to uninstall updates to the Google Play Services app but the Force Stop and Uninstall updates buttons are greyed out.

"Android Device Manager" was set as a device administrator but I've unchecked it and it hasn't helped.

    Note that even if you manage to uninstall those updates: they'll be back pretty soon due to its auto-update :)

If you have the Android Device manager app installed then this can also make the force stop/uninstall updates buttons be disabled.

If you uninstall the Android Device manager app and disable "Android Device Manager" as a device administrator then those options should be enabled.
