    Hey guys. Had my Desire for about a month now, and am loving it, but have run into a problem over the last week or so. My friend stream app has stopped working. The widget will never refresh, and whenever I try and go into it an error : "The application Friend Stream (process com.htc.friendstream) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again" just keeps popping up, and I have no choice but to force close.

    Any help on the matter would be great. I've been hearing rumours it could be another app I've installed that's causing it, but I would have no idea what it would be.

    You could try logging out of Facebook for sense, and whatever other feeds you have running into the stream then logging back into them.

    Already tried it. Didn't work. Have also uninstalled all downloaded apps but still no luck. Annoying thing is I don't know if this is a upgrade related problem as HTC have posted no word about it, very frustrating.

    That's a bit weird, I'm at a loss, mine works ok but I generally use the FB app rather than pay much attention to the stream.

    I'm having the same problem.... it will update when I press the little refresh button but it won't keep updated automatically?

    I've had similar issues. Auto-update wasn't working reliably. The sync time at the bottom of the widget would change but nothing downloaded. I emailed HTC who told me to factory-reset. After that it worked for a while, then I had a couple of 'updater stopped unexpectedly' messages. Now it doesn't update expect in the morning when I turn on.

    On top of that, my music widget has crashed three times.

    If you have a task killer installed, you need to ignore friendstream and any android com processes.

    I've discovered removing my Twitter account brings it back to life. I can then reenter my Twitter login and it's fine for a while. Pain in the butt, but it's fixed it three times so far. Hopefully there's an update and or better fix for this soon

    For me I just need to go into the sync settings for FB and re-select the interval I want after each boot of the phone. Thereafter it works fine.

    I have had that problem a couple of times, but lastly the problem was a lot more persistent. Which led me to this forum. After reading what you all said I took a chance and made a reset on all the counts that is involved in friend stream. And voila, it worked. So thanx a lot for that.
    I use a htc legend and simply love it, despite the problem with friend stream.:D

    I have the same error too. I've also noticed that the fun little app "Today in History" doesn't update anymore. Currently not software fix for this at all it seems?

    I'm having an issue whereby if I want to look at someone's photos through Friend Stream - it keeps coming up with 'No Photos Or Videos Found'.

    Anyone else had this?

    I have the same problem, I just have fb on my friend stream but nothing seems to fix it, mearly get the "Cant update fb at this time try later" message. I will try the interval timings as mention but am trying to let the phone shut down and restart it, it has been 12 minutes so far and its still shutting down Grrrr!

    I have had the same issue start this week. Looked at the items above to no joy but saw this on another forum:

    Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Friend Stream > Clear Data and Clear Cache. (Note that I also did all of the Face book applications listed - there were 3 of them using cache)

    Then Goto Setup > Click Next and Skip till you get to Set up Social Networks > Log out and Log in again so It re-downloads all your data.

    I was then able to view the updates by pressing on the > button on the top of friend stream but no updates shown on the Face stream widget! So, I looked at the settings within the Widget, Show Updates, ticked off Face book then on agan. Hey Presto fixed!

    Hope this helps and thanks to the person on the Vodafone forum whose answer I used at first.

    I've had this twice now. FriendStream just stops working. Remove widget, remove account (Settings -> Accounts & Sync), add account (Facebook for HTC) and add the widget back on and it works again.

    I'll find that i have to go and unlink the contacts in the address book again though.

    I had this error on friend stream for about 2 weeks, after constantly trying different things nothing worked at all, so I played, a lot and found this. I found the fix and the cause! Ok, firstly delete Facebook account within friend stream, (click on the arrow), then go to manage apps, delete data and cache and force stop within Facebook for htc sense AND friend stream, go to your Facebook app and sign out, go to market next and un-install the Facebook update, ie. Roll it back to original, then restart your phone, resign back into friend stream, and set the auto sync time to 1 hour or 4, don't use 2, resign back into Facebook app, and voila, it all works as it did, the Facebook update is not right I think, kept getting authenticication errors even though was signed in, I've yet to try the 2 hour auto sync again or update Facebook to try, but so far mine has worked for 5 days, with no probs, maybe this Facebook update is affecting the desires only, emailed the developer to let em know, good luck. If you're worried about battery life go and search for the battery fix to make it last longer, my desire has now been unplugged for 24 hours solid with no re charge in-between, still got 35% battery left, I've used it a lot today same as I always do, before would be dead in about 6 hours, honestly it really does work!

    And got background data on, and mobile data on, turned live wallpaper off, I will try the 2 hour sync and the update again and repost my findings, tip. Everyone seems to forget to clear data from friend stream as well as the Facebook for friend stream, I did this before doing what I did, for me it didn't work, worth a shot though

    i signed up for twitter and logged in to it through friend stream and it packed in all together. Nothing i did would make it work again. I cleared the cache and signed out, deleted my accounts, everything you could think of i did and nothing worked. I did a factory reset and then signed back into facebook on friend stream and all was fine... weird. Nothing else has stopped working, and friend stream has been fine since. It was twitter that set it off in my case, so i haven't bothered with it since. hth.
