    It happen to e yesterday, i did a factory reset, an boom, it worked great, but u will lose all apps, an unlike the blackberry app store, it wont show u what apps u have downloaded. so My suggestion is, Backup ur contacts with Google Sync, then Do a list of all the Apps u have, and then do factory reset, which is... Application>Setting>Privacy>Reset. its simple

    BUT! IMPORTANT. i dont know much about the Android Market(since i bought the phone a week a go), dont know if u payed for apps, u will have to re-buy them or something, so please I SUGGEST! u look for this info before u do anything else!.

    BTW, the problem started after i UNINSTALLED a Battery Widget. so yea.

    I'm sorry but a full out restart is a last resort for me. This is a problem with the inner programming if the phone. I'm no techie but that much is clear that there has to be another way to get my widgets back.

    FYI you do not have to purchase your apps again. All paid apps are tied to your gmail and will be available to redownload after a factory reset or even switching to a different device.

    If it's the widgets you're missing, I would bet you moved the apps to the SDCard. That is a major no-no. Any app that uses a widget has to remain on the internal memory. I would move any app that uses a widget back to the internal memory first and see if that resolves your issue. If not, the next step would be to uninstall and re-install those apps, leaving them on the internal memory. If no love, then the solution is likely going to have to be a factory reset. I know you don't want to, but you may not have a choice.

    This post is relatively old now, but if anyone is still having this issue read on.

    I had this problem immediately after updating Google Maps. I am not sure if the update is still causing the issue, but the error message disappeared after I deleted the update.
