Ever since the update, I get a message box that pops up 3 or 4 times a day saying "Unfortunately, hangouts has stopped" Weird thing is, I don't even use hangouts. Even weirder, I have had it disabled from day one! I tried re-enabling it, and disabling it again with no luck. I even turned off notifications for it? Has anybody seen this too? Thanks!

Still comes up from time to time. Clearing cache does nothing for the message.

I had hangouts disabled too, and getting the messages. It was suggested I enable it and see if then, it goes away. Tech was not sure about it, but I thought it is worth a try. She said it could possibly be due to another program looking for hangouts and triggering the message.
Been six hours, and so far, no message.

Admin folks on other forums are saying that it is a Google glitch and if Hangouts is Disabled you will see the message. They are recommending to not Disable Hangouts for right now. Just don't log in or use it, but leave it Enabled to prevent the message.

i read on another forum to "force stop" the application.

i will try that as this is very annoying.
