Why can’t I install apps from the Android market?

When I log in to the Android market and click on install for any app, it says that my download is installing, but it will freeze and never completes. This happens every time. Any advice?

    try this: First instal Astro File Manager
    1) navigate to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and click on the SD Card tab
    2) select app one by one moving them to your phone’s internal storage by using the Move to phone tab
    3) use Astro File Manager and look for a folder named .android_secure (/mnt/sdcard) and delete it
    4)reboot your phone, then simply move all your applications back on the SD card
     

    or

    Menu => Settings => Applications => Manage Applications => "All" tab => Market
    * Click on "Clear cache" (you might get 'Force Close' on the Market application after that).
    * Reopen the market & download
