Application Stuck in Installing Status
I have an application stuck in "Installing" mode. When I go to application downloads it shows up as installing. There is no way to cancel it and it appears to be affecting other programs from being uninstalled. Trying to uninstall Wave Secure and it won't uninstall. I have removed the battery, even tried a task killer (didn't see anything) but nothing will remove it.

Help, I'm new here.....I have the Samsung Fascinate and I had an app installed that was working fine. All of a sudden it just says installing and I can't do anything with it. I even uninstalled the offending app and it is still hung up on "installing" in the market...won't let me stop...won't let me cancel.....
...I cleared the cache of the market in the manage apps section and that did nothing.
Can someone help me PLEASE!

OK, here is my last ditch effort that worked.
I used AppMonster and backed up my apps. I would guess you can do this with any uninstaller.
Then went and uninstalled the market via AppMonster. It didn't really seem to uninstall the market because the app was still on my phone. However, when I clicked on the app I had to agree to terms of service like it was the first time I was using it. When I went into market to look at downloaded apps. The two apps that were stuck in install mode are no longer stuck like that and show but show as "free" as they are not installed.
Such a simple fix to just uninstall then reinstall the market app. Can't believe I didn't think of it first.
