    I've noticed very bad battery lately and went to my downloads in the market and noticed about 5 apps that say they are installing and they never actually download them, and there isn't anyway i can stop them or anything, could someone help me out?

    Clcik on them and cancel all the installs one by one. "Update all" can be finicky sometimes
