    Hi,

    For the past 2 years or so, I've constantly had an update notification in the Mac App Store application for an application that I do not have, or have ever installed, on my machine nor have ever purchased under my Apple ID.

    The application is called "Nyan Cat: Lost in Space"

    When I try to click the 'Update' button, in the hope it'll just disappear, I get these two messages:

    I've been searching around on Google and have tried re-indexing Spotlight but the Nyan Cat app keeps re-appearing after some time.

    It's just something thats been bothering me every time I see it for the last couple of years but I can never get rid of that pesky cat with rainbows coming out of it's rear-end every time I try to.

    Would appreciate it if anyone can help me exterminate that not-so-innocent cat.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    did you try : right click, "Hide Update" ?

    Hi,

    where do I right-click? Nothing appears when I right click on the app's icon, the description or the 'update' button. I can't see anything on the menu either

    Thanks!

    Ah ok, I just tried it with an OS X update notification and the hide option is there but not with the Nyan Cat app :(

    Thanks for your help though ;)
