I recently uninstalled an app called All in one toolbox from Nexus 7 tablet, but this morning after I finished updating the Chrome browser, in the notifications panel I can see that somehow All in one toolbox got updates, but I can't find it anywhere on the installed apps list
enter image description here
How did this happen?
Or is this app still present on the tablet somewhere, and if it is, how and where do I find it?

--- EDIT ---
This app was uninstalled by long pressing on it's icon in the main menu, and then dragging it to uninstall, if that makes any difference.

  • If you click on that notification, can you still see the All-in-One app in the list of recently updated apps?

  • unfortunately I've already cleared all the notifications, but if I remember I couldn't see it in any list, neither the one that comes up when I click on that notification, nor any of the other downloaded and running apps list that we can find in settings. What I am worried about it that is it possible for the app to leave some of it's components behind even after I have told the device uninstall it, so that it doesn't show up on lists but it's files and some of it's activities remain behind

  • Since I downloaded this particular app from google playstore I'm hoping it's nothing dangerous, but if it is indeed possible for an app to linger around unseen even after I have uninstalled it, I should know about it

  • In app information, clicking an app in the app manager, there are two types of uninstall: Uninstall and Uninstall Updates. by using the launcher shortcut probabily it clicked Uninstall Updates, try to uninstall it again and tell us

This seems to be a bug. Try this:

  1. Open Play Store.
  2. Navigate to My Apps, then go to the All section.
  3. Delete the app from your account (usually by a small X in the top right corner of the list entry).

See diagram below:

My apps

If it does not give you the X to delete the app from your account, click on the app in that list and uninstall it from the app's Play Store screen.
