    Hi, I need some help.
    I have updated all my apps earlier today and ever since there has been 6 or 7 apps that are constantly showing the status of installing in the android market. I have had to charge the battery twice today because of this. Is there anyway that I can stop these installs? I am new to android so please be gentle. I have a samsung galaxy s and so far have tried uninstalling the apps it says are installing, clearing the cache, force closing the market, switching phone off and also performing a battery pull.
    Any further advice is greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Long press on the app that's installing and choose cancel then retry installing.

    Good luck!

    Nope sorry that isn't working, when I long press the app a dialog box pops up with the only choice being details and when that is pressed it just takes you to the app description and screenshots etc.

    If all else fails then perhaps a factory reset.

    Thanks. Factory reset has sorted it. Vodafone and samsung had no clue how to sort it.
