    How do I do this? I have a lot of things showing up which i deleted the folders for, yet they are still in the update list. I don't want to just hide them, I want them gone from the list. Any help?

    You probably have some preferences left from the applications in your Library. Try going to your user folder -> Library -> Application Support and look for a folder for your application in there. Delete it.

    Highlight the update, and Select Update > ignore Update

    That will not really solve the problem. It will just make it so that update doesn't show anymore, but other updates for that program will still pop up... I think.

    All future updates for that app will be ignored.

    What apps in particular?

    What program are you talking about? If it's something like Logic Pro, you will also probably have to go to Macintosh HD -> Library -> Application Support.

    Thanks. I didn't realize that. I figured it was just for that particular update.

    /Library/Receipts is the place you need to look. Delete anything related to the program you don't want any more.
