Hey Guys, NEED HELP !

Am running Yosemite Beta 10.10 on y Macbook pro 13' retina.
I am unable to delete an app from the Launchpad. It shows a blank 'Microsoft OneNote' icon with status bar however i have already deleted the app. The Launchpad icon in my dock shows a status bar too.
It seems like i cant delete the icon, system restart or reset dock command in terminal didn't work either.

Tried erasing all app from Launchpad but that did not work; Here is the command i used which gave me an error -

"sqlite3 ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db "DELETE from apps; \
DELETE from groups WHERE title<>''; DELETE from items WHERE rowid>2;" \
&& killall Dock"

I get an "Error: no such table: app"



"killall Dock" command worked but that did not fix/remove the icon or status bar from the Launchpad. And now i dont have a Launchpad Database in Library/Application support/ Dock folder !

Any suggestions ?

Regards,

J

PS: Find attached a screenshot.

Reset Launchpad

I created a simple app for this.

It have two functions, resetting the Launchpad and re-sorting the Open With menu when right clicking a file.

In Yosemite the reset sometimes acts a little strange and the Launchpad looks messed up. Resetting the Launchpad a couple of times fixes this. :)

Thank you so much, tcatdk :D
I have an older iMac, running Public Beta Yosemite Version 4, OS X 10.10, and Launchpad was messing up some update downloads. Not anymore, thanks to your Sorty app. Thank you, thank you, thank you :)
