Solved Windows store offers updates for apps not installed

Microsoft Ms office 97 standard edition...
April 3, 2013 at 14:38:14
Specs: Windows 8, 3Ghz/3Gb
I go to Metro Store because it shows there are 3 to update: Skype, Norton Studio and Kindle.

None of these applications appear in Control Panel's Uninstall Program list nor are they found in the Programs folder.
I don't know why the updates are being offered and don't want to install the apps.
Anyone know how to get it to stop offering the app updates?
I searched Google and Here but find nothing related.
(It is possible that this HP Pavilion came with Norton Studio and was removed on day 1 but find no remnants of it)

You may stop the updates being offered. This tutorial may be useful.
