    Dear members,

    The App Store on my iMac keeps giving me the following update message:

    [​IMG]

    -I don't even have Angry Birds installed on my iMac.
    -I used to have it a long time ago, but i unistalled it a long time ago.
    -I also can't update, because the Angry Birds that i had isn't linked to my Apple account.
    -Spotlight can't find any leftovers from the App, neither can Alfred.

    What to do?

    when you click update, does a login/password window with a russian email address of something like asdf123 pop up?
    are you running a 'less than legal' version of FCPX?

    This e-mail pops up: asdfff2011@mail.ru , so yes a russian email address

    I did instal a 'less than legal' version of FCPX a long time ago to test it, but i never use it.

    Could an Angry Bird update actually be related to FCPX?

    Yeah its related to that FCP file. i dont know how you'd remove it. I dont know if it does anything except be annoying, though

    Hmm, thanks for pointing it out though. Never would of thought those 2 apps would relate to each other in some way. I might delete FCPX since i never use it, but I have a small hope that it will fix the problem.
