Hello people,

Thanks

You installed a hacked app, originally from the Mac App Store. It contains the receipt for a different app, downloaded using an account that you don't control. You need to identify and remove the hacked app.
Important: The app you need to remove is not necessarily the one named in the App Store alert. For example, the App Store may prompt you to update "Angry Birds" or "Twitter," but the hacked app may be something else entirely. Don't make any assumptions about which app you're looking for. To find it, you must carry out a systematic search with Spotlight.
1. Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt=1
Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
2. In the Finder, press command-F to open a search window, or select
File ▹ Find
from the menu bar. In the search window, select
Search: This Mac
from the row of tokens below the toolbar. Below that is a popup menu of search criteria, initially showing Kind. From that menu, select
Other...
A sheet will drop down. In that sheet, select
Raw Query
as the criterion, then click OK or press return.
Now there will be a text box to the right of the menu of search criteria. That's where you enter the raw search query. Click in that box and paste the text you copied earlier by pressing command-V.
4. The search window will now show all the App Store products that are installed. Compare those search results with the list of your purchases from the App Store. To see the complete list, you may need to unhide hidden purchases. If any apps were download from the App Store using other Apple ID accounts that you control, sign in to the store under each of those ID's and check the purchases.
At least one of the apps in the Spotlight search results is not among your purchases in the App Store. Move each such item to the Trash, after quitting it if it's running. You may be prompted for your administrator password. Empty the Trash.
Quit and relaunch the App Store. Test.
If you find these instructions confusing, ask for an alternative method.

  • My iphone 4s keeps overheating and will not let me go on any of my apps as well as send any messages. plus my contract isn't up for another 6 months, what can i do?

    RESOLVED!!! I logged on to my Straight Talk online account, and did a Tech Chat. They immediately gave me a direct phone number and a Reference PIN number and asked me to contact their iPhone specialty support. I called (of course the gentleman's accent was very difficult for me to understand, but managed with asking continually for clarity). He walked me through several tests, setting changes and had me get on my wifi to obtain the latest APN settings. None of his efforts worked ad it was obviously NOT my Straight Talk iPhone 5, 64GB CDMA (no SIM) - it was something with their setting on their end on my account. I was placed on hold a few times and he would come back on to have me try to get on Safari and even Google... after the 3rd on-hold, he returned and asked me to try to use my data again without the wifi turned on and BINGO it worked... I still do not have my wifi turned on and I'm still receiving texts from YESTERDAY too while I was away from wifi service. IF you come across this issue - please call Straight Talk and/or log on to your Straight Talk online account and talk to an online customer service representative and get their direct line phone number for iPhone support and have your Reference PIN number available. Good Luck

  • HT5622 When I try to update my apps in the App Store it says sign in required and will not let me update then

    When I try to update my apps it says sign in required and will not let me update them

    I suspect you have apps that need updating that were purchased from more than one account
    - Apps are locked to the account that purchased them.
    - To update apps you have to sign into the account that purchased the apps. If you have apps that need updating purchased from more than one account you have to update them one at a time until the remaining apps were purchased from one account.

  • I can't update iPhoto after installing yosemite

    i can't update or open iPhoto after installing yosemite

    Ok so here's what you gonna do. (had this problem myself today, and after some fiddling figured out what to do.)
    Find your old iPhoto with a cross through it, right-click it and select 'show package contents'. A folder will open. In that folder go to Contents>MacOS and there will be three little things there. Click on the one called 'iPhoto' and terminal will open. Leave terminal open and wait four seconds and VOILA! iPhoto opens. Leave terminal open until you are finished with iPhoto, because if you close terminal, iPhoto will close with it. THX! ENJOY! Hope it works.
    P.S.
    You can close terminal once you close iPhoto. I also suggest backing up your iPhoto library while you can.

  • I have a new Apple ID and have updated it in iTunes. However it still says the old ID in settings under iCloud. It will not let me change it and prompts me to enter my password for the old ID. I put in the old Password but it doesn't work.

    I changed my Apple ID and it is not changing on my ipad. I did change it in iTunes but I can't change it or delete or update in settings under iCloud. It prompts for the password to the old id I put that in and it tells me that's not correct. I put the new password in and it tells me that's not correct. HELP!

    To change the iCloud ID you have to go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, provide the password for the old ID when prompted to turn off Find My iPhone, then sign back in with the ID you wish to use.  If you don't know the password for your old ID, or if it isn't accepted, go to https//appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Tap edit next to the primary email account, tap Edit, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  Then edit the name of the account to change it back to your old email address.  You can now use your current password to turn off Find My iPhone on your device, even though it prompts you for the password for your old account ID. Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account and choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted (your iCloud data will still be in iCloud).  Next, go back to https//appleid.apple.com and change your primary email address and iCloud ID name back to the way it was.  Now you can go to Settings>iCloud and sign in with your current iCloud ID and password.

  • I'm playing Cityville on Facebook....since I updated my Firefox I am having a problem. It keeps popping up with a 'about blank' page, and will not let me play, send gifts or anything else.

    when I try to send gifts, a popup window "about blank' shows up, and then it doesn't show my friends or anything else. I am having a hard time loading cityville, and am virtually unable to play the game.

    Also I copied this from my other computer web page:
    Reported Phishing website ahead.  Your network ha been monitored.  Your network has been compromised due to Browser hijacking.The browser hijacking software may redirect you towards phishing websites that try to access your Login Password details.  To fix this browser redirection issue we recommend you ask for instant help.  Help Line 1 877 899 1824.
    Then another smaller popup window pops up
    http://www.pcassists.info
    Security Error
    Call Helpline 1877 899 1824
    So this is what I was talking  about, and the small popup window plus the larger  Window stating "Reported Phishing website ahead" will not go away and I cannot use Safari anymore even after I shut down my computer, disconnected it, and then signed on again and reopened Safari, it still takes me to that page and I cannot get out of it.
    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

  • This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled... this comes up when I go to update Iphoto after installing Yosemite... how do I fix this?

    I have resolved this issue with the apple chat support by going to the "purchases" tab in the app store - where there was a message that I had to accept updates for the apps that wouldn't update.  Once I did this, signing in for each of them, they all updated just fine.

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    iTunes in Mac OS X Tiger is outdated. Open  > Software Update to install the latest iTunes version for Tiger.
    If you need iTunes 10.7 or a newer version, you have to upgrade to Mac OS X Snow Leopard. First, check that your Mac is supported > http://support.apple.com/kb/sp575 If it is, buy Snow Leopard > http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
    After buying Snow Leopard, make a backup of your data, insert the DVD and upgrade to Snow Leopard. After upgrading, open  > Software Update, and install the latest Snow Leopard version. Finally, run Software Update again to install iTunes 11.0.4. If you want to install iTunes 10.7 instead, download it from the Apple website > http://support.apple.com/kb/dl1576

  • My MacBook Pro has Mac OSX 10.5.8 and will not let me update any further. Why?

    I have a MacBook Pro that I purchased in 2009 (It doesn't have a SD card slot, but is an aluminum body). Right now it's using Mac OS X 10.5.8 and will not let me update any further, which means that I cannot install any new versions of iTunes or some other programs. How can I fix this?

    You can't upgrade beyond 10.5.8, that is the final step for Leopard.
    You can purchase Snow Leopard (10.6.x) from Apple (but you should have 2G of Ram installed, and sufficient hard drive space). Your Mac is fully capable of running Snow Leopard and will probably already meet the specs I mentioned.

  • I can't upload or import videos from my iphoto library, into final cut pro x.  When i click, IMPORT MEDIA in FCP, It lists iPhoto Library as GRAY, and will not let me access it.  I need the videos out of there.  I have tried every way I can think of.

    Like the title says...
    I can't upload or import videos from my iphoto library, into final cut pro x.  When i click, IMPORT MEDIA in FCP, It lists 'iPhoto Library' as GRAY, and will not let me select it.  I need the videos out of there.  I have tried every way I can think of.
    I have also tried from the iphoto side, to export the videos or share them to final cut.  I have had no luck.
    I have tried to drag and drop indidual video clips from iphoto to fcp, and the programs simply do not respond to each other
    I can see in the OLDER version of final cut pro x, where it has IMPORT FILES as an option, it was possible.  I see this on forums and youtube videos of the older versions.
    However, the newer version that i have, does not have IMPORT 'FILES' as an option, it is simply all lumped together as IMPORT 'MEDIA'
    Thank You for the Help

    at the end, you say "import preferences", which program are you describing?
    So im safer using footage that is remotely being pulled from iphoto...
    vs
    using footage that is imported into FCP from imovie?
    Is there anything i can do in fcp to make this footage more reliable or safer or more stable as i pull remotely from iphoto?
    All the footage, and all the libraries to all programs, or on a new pegasus 12tb raid 5 setup fyi.

    Try rebooting the device by pressing and holding the on/off and home buttons simultaneously until the screen goes blank and you see the apple logo. It should take about 10-15 seconds to reboot.

    BAckup your iPhoto library, depress and hold the option and command keys while launching iPhoto until the first aid window comes up and repair permissions and if necessary rebuild your database

  • Hi all, Since I updated to Mavericks I am having trouble with Safari showing all the buttons/clickable options, but they are gray and will not work. Specifically, the Trash Can/Delete and the "Move to" folder button simply do not work. Any ideas?
