    I'm running Froyo on an N-1.

    I have uninstalled some of the apps that I previously purchased, and I no longer want them to appear in the Downloads area of the Market app. However, they still show up there with the "Purchased" designation, and they contribute to the count of updated apps whenever Market checks for updates.

    I have followed the instructions here, but they do not work for me:

    Any ideas as to how I can keep these non-longer-installed, previously purchased apps from showing up within my list of Downloads?

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as I know, no. Apps that you purchase, even if you uninstall them, are tied to your specific gmail account. They will always stay in your downloads area. The link you referred to is talking about free apps that are lingering in cache.

    Oh. So I guess I'm out of luck. I really wish I could get rid of those apps.

    Oh well ...
