updating an app that isn't installed

i used to have jportable installed. i uninstalled it a long time ago. yet, occasionally, when i update my apps, it appears and updates. something must have gone wrong with the uninstaller. i have tried reinstalling and uninstalling.

perhaps related, but not a big deal to me (i mention it b/c it might be related), when i launch portableapps platform, all my shortcuts on my desktop disappears. when i close it again, they reappear. weird.

i installed the platform in the C:/ and am using windows 10.

Plugins Manually Uninstalled

You likely had jPortable and jPortable Launcher installed. jPortable Launcher is an app and you likely right-clicked on it and uninstalled it. jPortable is a CommonFiles plugin and can only be uninstalled manually at present. Explore to your X:\PortableApps\CommonFiles (or similar) directory and delete the Java directory within.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Hide Desktop Icons

perhaps related, but not a big deal to me (i mention it b/c it might be related), when i launch portableapps platform, all my shortcuts on my desktop disappears. when i close it again, they reappear. weird.

You appear to have enabled the "Hide Desktop Icons" option, found in the platform's options dialog.
