I'm repeating with 1. Unmentioned step.  in the settings, security menu I unchecked "unknown sources (allow installations of apps from unknown sources)".(please make sure you check this after the problem is resolved, cuz there are rogue, scrupless  hackers out there.
Now Proceed...
Followed until "uninstall" was not live link so I deleted data. It still went down to 3M. 'Force stopped' it & restarted my ZTE 4.4.4.Went back into settings, disabled, & enabled G+ and G-search. Checked on Launcher-in good health disable/enable link is not live. So I'm guessing one of the  Gs updated it when they were enabled. Seamless! Tech help said "factory reset" Im glad I didnt...No need for that. My home screen looks kissable again!! Good Luck...asking is power!

Does not work. Same problem as above (device if rotated)
commented Jan 8, 2016 by TOF

commented Jan 16, 2016 by Ruby Rose
If clear cache does not work I used clear data and it fixed it,the only problem is I have to go through tutorial again,but all apps are still there.
commented Jan 17, 2016 by krohshee
I encountered this today.  Don't do a factory reset for your phone.  Clearing the Launcher or Launcher3 cache should work.  I had my phone factory reset and it didn't solve the problem so don't.  Your phone is going to attempt to execute the program at a given timeframe so you'd just got to wait when the phone actually gives up executing Launcher.  When it finally stopped, do as what the other said in the above comments, clearing the Launcher or Launcher3 cache from going to the Settings->Apps

Didn't work for ZTE android

Clear all data & catch from Launcher in setting =apps = all apps = launcher
commented May 9, 2016 by anonymous
You have tried to put another launcher?
You can also try to erase data. Go to settings / applications / all, look for the launcher, and delete data
commented May 23, 2016 by rojohm
What if I can't click settings cause of the apps crashing...the only thing I can click is OK
commented Jun 1, 2016 by Baba
Thank you. This worked. I also cleared the data

while phone launcher can unfortunately stopped working don't worry about that...

1.First you do not put no launcher of unknown resources of downloading play store in launcher.

2.Any launcher can you use that affect a in built of phone launcher.

3.Do not download the android launcher on play store it has take to much of ram and battery

4.use only the phone launcher.

4.avoid useless application .

5.then restart your phone .

6.your phone works properly.

From swipe down menu go to settings>apps>swipe left for all apps>scroll down to launcher>clear cache, then clear data, then force stop..... Scroll down and press the launch button,
This should restart the launcher also wait two minutes and restart phone it should work fine.

I've done all the above & I factory reset once, and it worked okay for a little then the launcher started crashing again and so did the mobile ID app. So I F.A. again and it was cool again for a bit then started doing the same thing again. I'm not sure if I should do factory reset a 3rd time or just turn it in to assurance wireless...I think I'll do both. Stupid cheap phones.. . Stupid Obama wonder they'really free cuz this cap keepso happening...!

1. Go to System Settings General (slide the top bar and touch to the sprocket).
2. Touch "Applications" (or "Application Manager").
3. Touch "All" (or "Display system applications").
4.Select "Launcher"
5. On the next screen tap the "Force stop" button and the "Clear Data" and " Clear Cache" button  

If the problem of not being able to download or update persists:
