    Problems with Uninstalled Applications

    I have been having a problem where some of the applications that I have uninstalled are still listed in the market as installed, and options to open or uninstall from the market are grayed out.

    I am wondering if anyone else has run into this and knows of a way to fix it.

    Is there a program out there that can clean temp files/cashe/history?

    I didn't find a solution, I reset mine. I did see in the comments of some app (I don't remember the name off hand) for "easier uninstalling" that others had problems after using it where it wasn't fully uninstalled.

    I've noticed this too... to avoid it I always uninstall from The Market > Downloads. I do believe there are uninstall apps but I don't know if it addresses this problem.

    Quick Uninstaller v2.1.5 Application for Android | Tools

    Quick Uninstaller v2.1.4 Application for Android | Tools

    If you give one of these a shot post back and let us know how it works.

    uninstall programs are ok but do't list prgrams previously uninstalled

    I tried the uninstall programs. They only remove current programs. My problem is programs I previously uninstalled.
    Only some of the ones uninstalled are still listed in my download page. I get alerts for updates. The uninstall option is grayed out. The four programs are Listen, Photoshop, handcent sms, free advanced task manager.

    Just posted on a different thread, here:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/tec...on-market.html

    I had to find an apk file to install, but after uninstalling through market finally got rid of it. Moral of the story, use marketplace to uninstall.
