I've removed an app long ago, but when I unlock the phone a message appears which says: "the app" has stopped

I had changed its location from internal to external before I remove it.

Also I have another app which keep stopping, I changed it to external too.

I cannot rechange the apps which I changed their location after I've updated android system

These two apps are not English

J7 prime 2017 Android 8.1.0

  • Try installing the app again and then uninstall

  • Still apears , and about the other problems? Mar 4, 2019 at 10:24
  • One problem at a time is a better approach. Try uninstall following this answer android.stackexchange.com/a/204485/131553. Also edit to add device details and Android version

  • Didnt work. This app is not in my application list at all! Mar 4, 2019 at 12:56
  • I would try finding the folder where the app was installed and deleting the files there after it is uninstalled. It sounds like it is not removing the actual program completely.

Sometimes, a corrupted cache can make the system behave unexpectedly.

So, try clearing the cache partition from the recovery mode on android. It solves most issues.

  • Didnt work... you know, sometimes it appeares and then after a restart it disappears! Now it is not appearing after unlocking but maybe after one restart or max power saving mode, it is begining its bothering Mar 16, 2019 at 5:17
  • What was the app and what type of app was it?
