    Since I installed 10.8.3 the count of available updates badge on the app store dock icon does not go away after any updates are applied. It just keeps counting up. Never seen this before. Any suggestions?

    Found somewhere in the forum:

    Go to:
    Startup Disk > username > Library > Preferences

    Then, you need to find these files:

    Delete those files and logoff/login.

    Hi Isamilis,
    I re-booted the machine last night and the problem went away. If it happens again, I'll give your solution a go and let you know how it turns out.

    Thanks for the reply.
