    Hey, so since the recent market update, I've started getting double notifications for app updates, but then when I go to them, there aren't any updates available. So while looking around, I discovered you can switch market "accounts" to see apps you've downloaded on other logged in gmail accounts, which would explain the double notification. So I've always had my normal email as the phone's default account, but I also have my work email logged in. I notice when I look at my work email apps, it's all the bloatware that came with the phone, which is also under my normal email account. Does this mean the bloatware is actually installed on my phone twice under two different names? If so, then that is not cool...

    A few market updates ago there was a bug that would use the second google account as the primary market account.

    Finally, no there is nothing double installed on your phone. Each account scans your apps and links them to the market.

    So is there a way to just take that account off so I don't get the double updates? A fix for those affected by the bug?

    Only thing I can thing of is to remove the account and re add it.

    Technically, you shouldn't lose anything since it's all in the cloud.

    Tried it, doesn't do anything. There should be a way to remove an account from the market or something, or at least be able to turn off notifications per account. Ah well, thanks for trying...

    You could try going to market.android.com and signing in with the account you want to remove and see there is an option.
