    I installed the Discovery Channel app then deleted it. It still shows in my download area as free. Any way to remove this listing showing under my downloads area?

    Hmmm, it shouldn't. Are you backing out of the market? Tried rebooting?

    Yes, both. This is the only app that I have ever had this problem with. I also went into the manage apps area and cleared the market cache. When I went back into the market I had to accept the terms again but the app still shows.

    Go to Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, All, Market and Clear Cache. Back or Exit completely out of the Market. Worked for me.

    I'm trying this on Froyo, but clearing the Market cache does not remove Uninstalled Purchased apps from my Downloads area.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks in advance.

    Look for Market in the application list. This works!
