In the app store, I have a update for an app called "Nepenthes", by Wei Li, which claims to be "for enterprise solution".

However, I've never installed an app by that name, and I can't find it anywhere on the drive.

How do I get rid of it - in two parts:

1) How do I get rid of the update listing in the app store? (I've tried removing ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.commerce/updates.plist and rebooting.

2) How do I make sure it is not installed? (other than not finding it on the hard drive)

Thanks, Russ

    Check for it in your Purchases list. If it's there it will say 'Download' if you 'purchased' it but either didn't install or discarded it. It will say 'Open' if it's installed.
