(I Fixed It!) Gsuite Email Receiving But Not Sending – Or Going to SPAM

This article is for you if you have a Gsuite email address (Gmail backend, your domain frontend) and you’re able to receive emails, but can’t send them. This article is also applicable for those who can send but their emails go to spam.

These following steps will not only get you to restart sending emails but also prevent your legitimate emails from going into spam in client accounts.

Congratulations (NOT) – Your IP has been labeled as a SPAM generating IP by Google (and possibly by other services too). That’s okay, we’ll fix it.

Yes, even if it’s a Google Apps/ Google Domains/ G Suite / Google hosted mail / Gmail on your own Domain name IP. This can happen for 3 reasons:

  1. You’re actually a spammer – Hi, how are you?
  2. A malicious script is using that IP to send spam mail.
  3. Your email is being used as the “sender” of various auto-generated spam emails.

In this article I’ll tell you in the most to-the-point way to tell Google you are not spamming and start sending emails.

The Error Messages (for which this article is appropriate):

Message not delivered
There was a problem delivering your message to an-email-address@gmail.com. See the technical details below or try resending in a few minutes.

Followed by an error message that says ” The response was:

421 4.7.28 [209.85.220.65 15] Our system has detected an unusual rate of unsolicited mail originating from your IP address. To protect our users from spam, mail sent from your IP address has been temporarily rate limited. Please visit https://support.google.com/mail/?p=UnsolicitedRateLimitError to review our Bulk Email Senders Guidelines. k8sor25509159pgm.33 – gsmtp ”

The Solution

Then After 2 F**king Hours of Forum Scouting, I Have a 2 Step Solution for You.

You will need the following to fix this:

  1. Access to our domain’s hosting panel to change the DNS settings. You literally have to just add 2 TXT entries, nothing else.
  2. Access to your GSuite Admin Panel at Google.com/a/your-domain-name.extension

If you don’t have either of these as of this moment, pause, get those details and come back to this (you might want to bookmark this).

If You Have Credentials for Your Hosting and Gsuite, Read on:

  1. Go to https://toolbox.googleapps.com/apps/checkmx/
  2. Enter your Gsuite domain name
  3. See the list of errors. Ignore the rest (if email was working fine earlier) and just fix the following error: “DKIM is not set up”. To fix this, you will need to login to your Gsuite.
  4. Once logged into Gsuite, go to Apps -> Gsuite -> Settings for Gmail -> Authenticate Email . There, generate new record, enter that as a TXT field in your domain’s DNS, wait for it to propagate, then click on “Start Authentication” on that page.
    Be patient with the DNS records propagation. Use a tool like https://www.whatsmydns.net/#TXT/ to check when the TXT record has propagated. Once you see that the DNS has propagated, log out of your Gsuite account, log back in and click “start authentication”. Then you should see something like:
  5. Done! You’re good to go.

If this didn’t work for you, comment below where you’re stuck and let’s try to get this sorted for you.

Smart TV vs Normal TV – Are Smart TVs Dumb?

What is a Smart TV?

Originally known as “connected TVs”, Smart TVs are types that can connect to the internet for social networking, normal browsing activity, streaming on-demand rental services, as well as playing internet music and TV stations, in addition to streaming ordinary cable or satellite TV content. The best Smart TVs offer entertainment, social networking and functional features that normal TVs don’t and in 2016 there’s a range of Smart TVs available under £500. This was definitely not the case in 2014 or 2015 in Britain.

How different are smart TVs from normal TVs?

Unlike the normal UK TV models that are based on mere integrated circuits, smart TVs run on operating system software that has pre-installed apps, although there is no standard operating system across the board. Popular UK brands Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Sony – they all have their custom built operating systems with their different layouts and usability. While traditional TV sets have a few standard inputs and output ports, the top reviewed smart TVs tend to offer more options to connect to devices. Thus almost every smart TV in UK incorporates a variety of input options including multiple HDMI and USB ports, and allows networking with a number of home devices and smartphones.

Something about smart TVs that is not found on other normal TVs in the UK is the ability to stream on-demand video services such as Hulu and Netflix. In late 2015 and early 2016, there has been popularity of these services and the debate about how people can actually reduce the cost of watching content in Britain by incorporating on-demand content into their day-to-day life.

Besides, users can browse social sites such as Facebook and Twitter through apps, thus these devices compete in that way, with the best smartphones and most powerful computers.

How do smart TVs work? Technology

  • Juggling of graphics/video processing
  • video streaming
  • managing internet connectivity
  • managing multiple screens
  • memory management

Smart TVs do all this using an integrated computer-like framework. These TVs use processors in order to handle a volume of tasks. Some Smart TVs also come with extended internal memory and external memory slots in the UK.

They also use software to allow reception and processing of complex and multiple instructions, as well as relaying back of useful feedback. The world has experienced the Full HD (1080x1920p), and Ultra HD 4K (about 4000p) screens that deliver sharper and more detailed screen images and is anticipating the 4K Blue-ray discs that are expected to deliver extra quality – more details and sharpness, but cost more.

Applications are either preinstalled or can be installed just like smartphones and computers. These applications allow watching on-demand video services and using social networking services like Twitter and Facebook. Many of these TVs come with in-built WiFi for internet connectivity, others connect to the internet using an ethernet cable. In 2016, you’ll hardly find any without WiFi capabilities.

Are they worth it? Let’s discuss pricing and features

According to Topuptv.co.uk, you can buy a 50 inch Smart TV in less than 500 pounds, which was definitely not possible in the UK earlier this year. Smart TVs offer much more content than the traditional normal TVs and are slowly becoming an integral part of modern home entertainment. However, some argue that they’re overpriced although this is changing in 2016. Smart TVs can be worth the cost especially when you consider the price of separate internet connectivity gadgets, set top boxes etc which are not required with Smart TVs. The fact that smart TVs offer more features make them acceptable at their higher costs and are better options to cable TV if your family is used to watching movies, online streaming services, occasional series and live sports.

Thank you for visiting this page!

With all the information above, you can clearly understand why smart TVs have become so popular over the years. Their evolution has marked a turning point in the way we view tv.

10 Reasons Why France and ISIS Are Fighting

France has faced tragedy before and it struck again yesterday on the 13th of November 2015. There are various reasons why the Islamic State is targeting France. The fight has caused a lot of destruction and has shocked the world over and over again. Here are the top 10 reasons why France is the primary target of Islamic terrorists.

  1. France joined the US in attacking Syria in September 2015.

    France has been a lead taker and probably the most active country in tackling Islamic terrorism in Syria.

  2. France has been a leading force opposing Islamic terrorist activity around the world.

    Other places where France has actively attacked jihadis are Mali (since 2013), Libya and Iraq. In the attack yesterday, one of the attackers shouted “This is for Syria” before hurling bullets and grenades on unarmed civilians.

  3. France has a huge Islamic/Muslim community in Europe which makes it easier for IS to find recruits.

    Various French army men have defected to the Islamic State even ones from the First Marine Infantry Parachute regiment which is known worldwide for the finest commando training.
    Up to ten former French soldiers  have defected to Islamic State    Telegraph

  4. There’s a huge inflow of arms into France from other European countries.

  5. The French have killed various top al-Queda commanders which has made them enemies throughout the Islamic world.

    Over 9000 French troupes are placed around the world to curtail Islamic Jihadi terrorist activities. There is french presence in various parts of Africa and in Iraq. The French have paid the price with the terrorists kidnapping dozens of French nationals and killing many including the 2013 killing of Frenchman Philippe Verdon.

  6. France is further escalating the war on Islamic Terrorists

    Last week France made the announcement to deploy an aircraft carrier in the Gulf sea to further it’s fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

  7. Inside France, the gap between the Islamic and Christian community has grown over the years.

    France took the lead in banning of the burqas and French prisons are known for radicalising innocent Muslim men into hardened jehadis.

  8. Over 65% of inmates inside French jails are Muslims.

    There is belief in the Islamic community in France that they’re targeted against and prisons act as madarasas or schools to convert these young Muslim men into hardened fundamentalists.
    In France Prisons Filled With Muslims

    What is going wrong in France s prisons Telegraph

  9. French neighbour Belgium is an arms haven

    In the previous Charlie Hebdo attack, all weapons were sourced from Belgium. The unprotected borders don’t help and anyone can easily drive into France from Belgium.

  10. Proximity to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria

    France, out of France, UK and USA is the closest to the affected African and Middle East areas making it an obvious target.

Any thoughts – comment below. Messages with hatred will be removed.

WordAds vs Adsense – How to Maximise Revenue from Your Blog?

wordads vs adsense

Wordads by Automattic (the creators of WordPress) is an advertising system like Google Adsense to monetise your blog or website. If you’re confused about the two and wondering which one to use for your website, get this right:

  1. You CANNOT run WordAds on a non WordPress.com website! Not even on self hosted WordPress websites.
  2. You CANNOT run Google Adsense on a WordPress.com hosted website – whether it’s free, premium or business.

So may I request everyone who does not have a WordPress.com hosted site to stop worrying about Wordads and focus on getting more traffic and optimising Adsense ads please? If you have a non-wordpress.com hosted website, you have 10 seconds to close this page and stop worrying about all this Wordads hype.

Okay and now for the 0.01% of you left, who have a wordpress.com hosted blog/website, please note the following:

  1. Even if you have a wordpress.com hosted blog, you can’t run Wordads on the classic yourblog.wordpress.com type URL.
  2. Your blog must be upgraded to one of the three plans to qualify for WordAds.
  3. You do not auto-qualify to run WordAds. Your website must have a certain minimum traffic threshold.
  4. You need to have a certain level of user engagement, no thin content, no auto-generated traffic!
  5. You need to apply and wait for them to approve you for Wordads.

Now, for the 0.01% of the 0.01%  that tick all the points above: you can apply for Wordads here. Many news sites and reputable blogs have claimed that with Wordads you can make more money than Google Adsense but to be honest I don’t believe that. An honest comparision can’t be made between Google Adsense and Automattic WordAds because a lot depends on your Adsense ad placements and how good you are with it. With Wordads you don’t have control over where to display ads, they have their fixed pre-decided areas where they’ll place ads (mostly flash based good quality ads).

This is also a wordpress.com hosted website and I’ve applied for Wordads today. Since there is no mention of the minimum traffic requirements, I’m not sure if cafearjun.com will qualify. If it does, I’ll update this post with the kind of earnings you can expect with WordAds.

Until then, keep well.

Update – 6 hours after applying for WordAds – Got Approved! 🙂

Awesomeness happened and I got an email saying that cafearjun.com has been approved for WordAds! I’ll share some stats on the traffic on this blog to give you an idea of what you are looking at in terms of traffic.

How Much Can You Expect to Earn From WordAds?

I’ve been reading about this on the web for sometime now and it seems you can forget about making any decent money unless your users come primarily from the US or Europe.

  • Mark Madrona report from the Filipino Tribe reports his earnings to $104 from apprx 75000 impressions. That is a CPM of 0.13 USD or 1/10th of a cent per impression. His audience is primarily from the Philippines. And if you’re a blogger, you’ll know how hard it is to generate 75000 impressions. I see of lot of other ads on Mark’s site now, he’s probably moved to WordPress self hosted now. Would be interesting to know how he is doing now in terms of revenue.
  • Prannay Jha who writes mostly for an Indian audience on his blog Subtle Words has reported figures that would even disappoint Not for Profits. I love his writing style and probably because of the Indian target, he can’t rely on Blogging for a livelihood for sure.
  • Dennis who writes about technology and is a really positive guy reports in his post an earning of 133 USD for 67000 ad impressions. This is way better than Mark and Prannay’s earnings possibly because Dennis gets US traffic.

I get 70% US traffic and 20% Indian traffic, let me complete a month and I’ll update how much I earn 🙂 exciting times! Thank you WordAds!

Update 26th December 2015

Earnings are $4.55 for this month. That’ll just about buy me a Starbucks coffee.

Considering that in the period between 20th November and 20th December the blog got just under 7000 unique users, I don’t understand why the impressions are just 4427 – maybe because I run the ad only at the bottom of the page and not everyone scrolls right to the bottom of the post.

My earnings in terms of impressions vs dollars made are on the lines that other bloggers are making.

I’ll try changing the layout to something that allows ads at the start and end and see how that impacts the earnings.

Will keep you all  posted, see you next month.

What Happens if a Treadmill Stops Suddenly – Power Outage or Broken

Treadmill Sudden Halts and Understanding Relative Velocity

Treadmills may Halt All of a Sudden

Imagine you’re running on the road at 10 Km/h or 6 M/h speed and suddenly a pole appears 1 foot ahead of you. There’s no way you can stop in time to avoid collision. That’s because your body has momentum and relative to the earth you are going at 10 kilometers per hour; the momentum would make your body slow down gradually and it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to come to a complete stand-still the moment you decide to stop. You will use your body and leg muscles in the opposite direction but the pole being 1 foot away means your body will continue to surge ahead despite your efforts to stop.

A pole 1 foot away - hypothetical result

However, if you’re running with the same speed on a treadmill and the treadmill stops suddenly because it’s broken or because of a power outage, you will stop right there at that very moment. That’s because your speed with respect to the earth on the treadmill is 0 Km/h. Your brain will take a few milliseconds to identify that the treadmill belt has stopped and you may place the next step but you won’t collide with great force with the treadmill’s panel because your body’s momentum doesn’t exist in one particular direction. Yes you can have a knee injury because of the jerk though. many treadmills come with a big STOP button, pushing which the machine comes to a sudden stop – this is provided in case there is an emergency – like a piece of your clothing is stuck or if you’ve stepped at the wrong place and are about to fall.

This is why understanding relative velocity (velocity and not speed because velocity is directional) is important for treadmill users. So if you’re wondering what happens in case of a power cut or in case the treadmill breaks, don’t worry, you’ll not run into the cross-panel and hurt yourself badly. On a treadmill what really happens is that your legs are moving in running-like motion but you’re not really running, it’s more like hopping at a stationary point. Regular treadmill users must also have noticed that unless the treadmill training is done on an incline, you can cover larger distances on the treadmill as compared to actual running.

The Bus Example:

When you’re on a moving bus, your body’s velocity relative to the earth is that of the bus. That’s why you may have noticed that when you try to exit a moving bus, because of your body’s momentum, you body continues traveling in the direction of the bus. That’s why most people run in the direction of the moving bus while getting off a moving bus. Also, if you toss a ball in the air in a moving bus, you will notice that the ball lands back in your hand and the speed of the bus becomes irrelevant because the velocity of the ball thrown in the air is 0Km/h with respect to the bus. If you’re traveling in a bus at 50km/h and a car passes you by at 60km/h then the car’s “”relative velocity” is 10Km/h with the bus as a reference point.

My Gym, My City and Electricity Cuts

Whenever on the treadmill, I always worry about what would happen if the belt stops suddenly especially being in a country where power outages are normal. I hope you found this article useful. Any questions, please write a comment below.

Url Profiler – Problem Connecting To Data Source

If you use the Url Profiler and have had the application running for sometime, there’s a chance that you’ll see all 0s in your url_profile_results xlsx file on executing the Majestic report that comes free with the Urlprofiler. In the xlsx file generated, the 8th column will say “Problem connecting to data source” (see image).

Problem connecting to data source

At that point you will immediately hop on to Google and search this text. 😉

Solution: 

Restart the Url Profiler and don’t let it wait too long before executing your query. I have seen this happening with and without the Majestic API, so you thinking “Maybe the free Majestic version is not working and maybe I should buy a subscription” is not true. The only major difference between the free and paid Majestic data fetching on the UrlProfiler is the speed – the speed is lightening fast with the API.

You will probably have a hard time locating the API key on Majestic – so let me tell you that you do have access to the API on the Silver plan also (you don’t need the Platinum plan) and it can be obtained here. Good luck.

making money online is no magic

Why read this article? Who Am I?

I’m Arjun, have run 800+ websites in parallel, made money from those using every possible strategy there is. I started in 2004 and it took me 3 years of learning to start making money online in 2007 and I’ve never looked back since. Of all these ventures, the most money I’ve made is in projects that don’t really need any technical know-how, don’t require any upfront investment and don’t require lying or cheating or conning anyone. These kind of online businesses are not only the most fun to run but also are the longest lasting. There are hundreds of people out there that will teach you a step-by-step method of making money. Yes they do work, but they come with an expiry date – think – if there’s a short cut technique for making money, sooner or later it will be exposed to way too many people for it to be effective anymore. Don’t go for that or you’ll never have a reliable online business ever.

In this Blog post, I will explain a way of creating an online property that will require you to put in hard-work, use your brains, and create a website that will help thousands but at the same time will never go out of fashion and will continue growing in value with each passing month. I will be very direct and strict and put numbers in place that you will need to follow – provided you do exactly as I say, you WILL build an online property (website) that will make you money and will be a superb asset in the long term.

An Online Business Can Be Built Only With Ethics

To Make Things Clear – First I’ll Answer Some Basic Questions

  1. Who is this system for? 
    • This system is for someone who is disciplined, has a decent IQ, believes in honesty and in the act of giving and has the capability to self-motivate. It is not easy sitting in a quiet room working toward a goal for months on end. People tend to give up, they can’t follow through, get demotivated or attracted to other schemes that promise more riches quicker. If you are one of those people, then don’t waste your time starting this activity because while I promise you that this will make you money, a lot of it and it is a stable business to be in, I can also tell you that it won’t be easy, will require hard work and it won’t happen overnight.
  2. How long before I start making money online? 
    • Your first dollars will start coming in, in 3-6 months, but it will take a minimum of 9 months to start making money that’ll justify you quitting your job. Some can start making a lot of money very quickly, whilst some can take slightly longer, but money you will make and you will ENJOY the process and the highs and lows that come with it.
  3. How much money can I make online?
    • In 2 years time your business will be worth 100,000 dollars plus and should be generating USD 5000 plus monthly in profit for you. I say this because with my technique, the average businesses I’ve seen have been valued at over USD 100,000 in 2 years’ time, hence this is a safe estimate figure to go by. After 9 months you can expect to be making enough money to sustain yourself comfortably. Just like any aspect of life, there will be some of you making a lot of money and some not so much. That will depend on the decisions you make and the smart work and hard work you put in.
  4. How much investment will I need?
    • About $350.
  5. What skills do I need?
    • Superb written English is necessary if you have a low budget. If you have money to invest, then you can hire top-class writers and they will write for you. The figure of $350 above is valid if you’re capable and willing to write yourself.
    • General street smartness.
    • Some business acumen will be handy, but not necessary.
    • Flare to read.
  6. How much time do I need to invest?
    • It’s an alternate career and at the start it requires as much time as any other profession – so I would say 8 hours a day to start with. Later when the business starts to make money, a lot of it is going to be on auto-pilot and at that time you can reduce that 8 hours a day to 5 hours a day or even move out completely by recruiting and training people to manage the business. You can also start it part-time along with a day job, but that would increase your gestation period by many months depending on the number of hours you put in per week.
  7. What technical skills do I need?
    • None, you just need to be a savvy Internet user.
  8. It’s an intangible business, can it evaporate overnight?
    • The business we’re talking about relies on people who visit your website. The search engines are a brilliant way to get users on your website, but if Search Engine Optimisation is done wrongly, then Google, Bing and other search engines can remove your website from their listings. If you follow Google Webmaster Guidelines and do stuff honestly without the intention of manipulating search rankings, then you have nothing to worry about and just like big businesses like Walmart, your business will not go anywhere. It will grow bigger and better with each passing month as you continue working on it.
  9. Will I need to recruit people?
    • Initially no, after a few years, maybe.

Let’s Get Started – Here’s a Summary of My Online Business Technique

Arjun's 3 Phase Online Money Making

Phase 1: Creating a web property worth $100,000 in the next 2 years with average monthly profit of $5000 per month.

You will create a new Brand in the business sector or niche of your choice by identifying:

  1. Product topics where there’s little or no information on the Internet. Product problems that are yet unsolved but are affecting hundreds or thousands of people every month. I will teach you how to identify keywords where there is interest but where little help is available. Here’s an example: People buy baby carriers in the US and UK all the time but new parents in the hiking community have been looking for baby carriers that would be ideal for hiking. There was no such information available online until I created a website on that topic. Another example in the same niche – baby carriers for parents with bad backs – there was no information available until we addressed it. Long story short, we addressed these problems, identified products after thorough study that would suit each customer group and suggested what people should buy. Monthly profit after this activity and 6 months of constant legitimate hard-work – $1000 per month 100% legally, ethically and honestly in a way that genuinely benefits people.

Selecting The Best and Safest Crib For Your Baby – 2015 2016 Latest

The most essential part of the house for a baby is his sleeping haven. This is where the little one curls up into a cozy sleep after the big day’s activities. An infant bed may constitute a crib, a cradle or a bassinet. While a cradle or a bassinet can be great options for the baby’s sleeping area, the reason why a good non toxic baby crib can save you a lot of work is that it can last for many years (due to its bigger size) while a cradle or a bassinet can go out of use sooner as a baby is likely to outgrow them in some months.

Essential Reading – Everything You Need to Know About Non-Toxic Cribs

Cute Twin Babies

Today in 2015 – 2016, the market has many types of cribs with dozens of crib accessories to offer. They differ in their design, price, manufacturing materials and so on, but honestly, they all look good only on the surface! So, if you’re looking to buy a crib for your baby, how do you decide which one to buy? Listed below are a few essential points to keep in mind when selecting the best crib for your baby.

1. Crib Size, Space, Storage and Combos

The size of the crib is important. Many parents buy small cribs that are perfect for baby’s current needs, but what they don’t realise is that babies grow very fast and before they know, they need a new, bigger crib. It is important to check the size of a crib’s sleeping area to see if your baby will be comfortable in it. At the same time, it is also important to check the space available in your house. If you have a small nursery, remember to go for a space-saving or fold-able baby crib. There are cribs that come with a lot of storage space, which is a superb idea for small homes as it saves you buying a separate shelf for baby diapers or other sleeping accessories. You may also want to check some cribs that have a built in changing area, drawers, play panels or even adjustable height to match the height of your bed. Some are one side open so it can form a part of your bed. There has been a lot of innovation in the cribs industry and you must explore the ideas I’ve mentioned.

2. Convertible, Transportable, Folding Cribs with Wheels

Simple cribs with basic functionalities are relatively lower in price in comparison to the more functional cribs like convertible baby cribs. Convertible cribs cab be transformed into a toddler bed, a day bed and/or a full-sized bed for later years. These are very popular and solve the baby bed problem for a long time. In addition to the crib conversion kits, some cribs come with additional features like an attached side table and/or dresser which can be used for changing the baby’s diapers and storing the baby’s stuff (like the ones with changing table mentioned above). Other types of cribs include the transportable cribs which can either have wheels to stand on, or can have the option of folding up into something like carry bags. These are a great option for parents who have to switch between houses or who travel often.

3. Budget for the Crib

Since there are innumerable types of cribs available, the price range is endless! It is crucial to define your budget for the crib before you set out to buy one. Although an increase in price can often get you a crib with added features, sometimes you’ll find that the higher price is mainly due to the design and look of the crib. In such cases, if your crib budget is low, it is wise to go for a simple looking option to bring down the price without compromising on the quality or safety.

4. Manufacturing Material for the Crib

Just as there are various types of cribs, so are there numerous types of crib manufacturing materials available today. Cribs can be made of wood, MDF, plastic or even metals, etc. While many of these can look attractive and strong from the outside, it is important to note that the cribs made of solid wood are the safest of them all. Wooden cribs are sturdy, beautiful and most importantly – non-toxic! Let us discuss more about crib safety in the following section.

5. Crib Safety – Sturdiness, Strength, Smell and Chemicals

Crib safety is most essential in my opinion. It is the one aspect that affects your baby’s well-being most significantly! In order to ensure that a crib is safe, we must check how strong the crib is. Like I mentioned above, the crib’s manufacturing material is an important part that determines the crib’s over-all strength. Another thing to keep in mind is that the crib should be non-toxic! It must be absolutely safe for the baby and must not contain harmful substances like lead, phthalates and formaldehyde (mostly found in crib glues). Sometimes the crib material is safe (like real wood) but the paints used to coat the surface are toxic. These paints can cause the room to fill the baby’s room with a toxic smell and it can take months for that smell to dissipate. I have read about parents having to sell their newly bought cribs at very low prices because of the annoying, toxic odour. At times despite all the materials being safe, the crib has lose or broken screws or joints. Hence, it is important to check all the materials used in the crib thoroughly before purchasing the crib. Finally, it is always advisable to buy a new crib if your budget allows you because used cribs can be weakened by rough handling over time and may not even meet the latest crib-safety standards.

Unfortunately Measure / MobileOcr / Engriks Has Stopped – Android Mega Viruses

Unfortunately Measure Has Stopped

Unfortunately mobileOcr Has Stopped

Unfortunately engriks Has Stopped

Please note: This post has been updated many times, and now we have found a solution together. Scroll down to the last paragraph to go straight to the solution.

Welcome to the world of super-annoying but super powerful android phone viruses. These viruses can’t be removed by restarting the phone, stopping apps, removing apps – what’s more, even doing a hard reset where the entire phone is formatted to factory default settings doesn’t remove these super stubborn malware like Measure, engriks and mobileOcr!

You would think – Why not install an anti-virus, right? Anti Virus software like “NQ Security” (that come as a default with Gionee phones) have no idea what is going on and are no good for these viruses. I scanned the phone and NQ security didn’t even report malware or virus, forget removing or cleaning it. Even McAfee has no idea about dealing with this according to some forums. AVG anti-virus evidently does uninstall the virus but it re-installs itself a few seconds later.

I tried looking everywhere around the Internet and I have no idea how to stop the constant popups that just won’t let me use the phone. For you to come to a solution to this problem and install a proper malware cleaner, you need to go to GooglePlay Store and install the app right? The absolutely horrendous popups with “unfortunately this app has stopped” will keep coming up relentlessly. You will get .5 to 1 second intervals when you can quickly click parts of the screen, but I swear, this is called Robot Apocalypse. Why isn’t there an option in Android to stop App Error popups altogether? There should be a way to pause it. Application Error Report details mentioned on android.com make no sense to a non-technical guy like me and doesn’t help.

I saw someone recommending installing Ghost Push Trojan Killer by going to the Play store, but I’m unable to reach the play store. Someone said install Titanium Back Up Pro and it will solve the problem.

I’ll call the Gionee service centre and see what they have to say. Guys, please post in the comments below if you do happen to find a solution.

Update: Do Not Try Any of The Following Solutions (these were recommended by experts but didn’t work)

  1. Firstly try Going to Settings -> Apps -> Running Apps -> Disable Measure and other apps that are causing the problem. It will probably not fix the problem as it didn’t do for me.
  2. Keep the irritating dialogue box pressed for a few seconds, then it will take you to the running apps and show you the app that’s causing this dialog to open. Disable that app. This also didn’t solve my problem.
  3. Switch off the phone, remove the battery and re-insert it after a few minutes. And the irritating popups are gone! But they re-appear after a few minutes.
  4. What if I have a non-removable battery? In that case you’ll have to take it to the service centre.

Here’s a Way to Disable The Irritating Popup Messages Temporarily

Disable the wifi and restart the phone. The popups won’t appear at all. But unfortunately once you start the WI-Fi, the popups will restart.

What Happened At The Service Centre?

I just came back home with my phone cleaned by the Gionee service centre. The system looks new, the icons are different so they’ve definitely done something. After switching it on and connecting to the WIFI:

I START GETTING THE DAMN MESSAGES AGAIN!! SOMEONE SAVE ME!

The money I’ve paid to get the Gionee phone repaired has given me a 1 month warranty. I’m taking my phone to them again today/tomorrow. I’ll update what happens next. Until then, please keep the solutions coming in the comments.

Update 29th October 2015

After going back to the Gionee service centre and telling them about this recurring problem, they said that in that case the phone will have to be sent back to the company. They’ve now asked me to come back in a few days. Until then, I am without a phone. Reminds me of the early 2000s when landline phones were the only way to contact anyone, blessing in disguise.

Update 7th of November 2015

My phone is back from the Gionee service centre with a new looking OS and the problem is fixed! They took about 5 days, completely reset the phone and Engriks, Mobile OCR and Measure have gone! I’ve now changed the settings so no application can ever get installed without my permission, non-trustworthy apps don’t get installed and all kinds of auto installations are disabled.

I apologise that we couldn’t find a DIY solution for this problem. Those who are getting these errors must contact their respective service centres immediately. My phone was out of warranty and Gionee charged only $4 (Rs 200) for this.

Finally, my phone is fixed!

Update 26th December 2015 – An Easy DIY Solution Found!

Firstly a big thanks to users “Indian” and “Marius” and all other users who helped in trying to find a solution.

HappyAtWork01

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Play Store. Measure/ Mobilocr / 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. Search for “CM Security” and install it!
    CM Security Antivirus AppLock Android Apps on Google Play
  3. 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:
  4. Search for an app called “Ghost Push Trojan Killer” and install it!
    Ghost Push Trojan Killer Android Apps on Google Play
  5. Run it! Requires rooting your phone. Allow it – let it do its thing and in 99% cases this will fix your phone.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who helped out. 🙂
