Hi, first of all, uninstall the one that you have downloaded from the web.

Reboot phone and check again, make sure phone is connected to Wi-Fi or Mobile Data Network.

If still nothing, goto Settings>Applications>Manage applications, search for Market, tap Clear data and then exit.

Re: Android Market disappeared !!!

I have the feeling that it has already been updated. Goto app drawer, search for Play Store (new icon and name).

Play Store found, is that the same application? has the Market been replaced with this app?
