    What's up guys! I would like to get some help regarding an issue that I encountered today when I was updating a few mac apps.

    So I clicked on Software Update under the Apple logo. It opened up my Mac App Store application then there was two programs that came up that has an update. I have both programs of such updates installed in my computer. I clicked on Update All. One started downloading and finished then the other one didn't even start to download. Then I clicked on the specific tab beside it to download it. But it asked for my password. The thing is, the Apple ID isn't my Apple ID. I can't delete it to change it.

    How do I go about in fixing this problem? I need this sorted out ASAP. Thanks in defiance guys. :)

    I'm not at my Mac right now but if you click one of the menus in the top right (File, Edit etc.), there should be a sign out option. Then, go there again and sign is with the correct account.
