I have two applications showing up in Software Update that I didn't install, don't exist anywhere on any volume attached to my computer (and never have), and I would like to remove them. When I click on the "Update" button an Apple ID I've never heard of shows up (a different ID for each application). I'd install the apps just so I can delete them, but both cost money that I'd rather not spend.
My only guess is that some applications I have, which were obtained through a friend ;), were originally installed using these Apple IDs or are otherwise associated with them, and that info is being read by Software Update. Is there some centralized place I could edit to remove these entries? I would rather not
grep -r "email@example.com" /Applications if I don't have to, as it's over 32GB, but if that's the only way I'll bite the bullet and do it. I was rather hoping there'd be a
.plist somewhere I could edit real quick...
