My phone is attacked by barrage of error dialogs every 1 second:

  • Unfortunately Measure Has Stopped
  • Unfortunately mobileOcr Has Stopped
  • Unfortunately engriks Has Stopped

It makes the phone so laggy until it restarts by itself. Some other apps also don't work, and it's hard to use the keyboard due to the error dialogs.

I have tried:

  • Disabling and uninstalling the apps from Settings
  • Installing antiviruses (NQ Mobile Security & Antivirus), but it didn't help either
  • Factory reset

I found out that turning off the WiFi (or internet) and restarting the phone prevent the error dialogs to appear, but as soon as I turn it on, they appear again.

Is there a way to remove these malwares?

From Cafe Arjun blog,

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Play Store.
    Measure/mobileOcr/Engriks will annoy you and won’t let you enter username and password if you're not logged in. So make sure you have copied and pasted the password before-hand so you can enter it quickly.
  2. Install CM Security Antivirus AppLock and run it.
    This will most probably fix your phone after the scan. For a small percentage of people, this will not solve the problem. In that case, go to the next step:
  3. Install Stubborn Trojan Killer (Requires root, originally "Ghost Push Trojan Killer")
    Run it and allow the root access – let it do its thing and in 99% cases this will fix your phone.

I also have an idea!

Buy an SD card (a new one), put it into the mobile phone, and go to settings. Then go to apps and select engriks ... move them to the SD card, and then remove the SD card.

Maybe it works. I still did not try it.
