The thing is iPhoto came with my MBP when I first bought it, back then the osx was Lion. I was having trouble using my apple id to download stuff from the app store so my ex girlfriend (back then my girlfriend) used her id so that I could download free apps and stuff. that turned out to be a huge mistake because her id was instantly saved in my osx and all future apps and upgrades were made with her id. I upgraded to Mountain Lion as soon as it came out and iPhoto was working correctly until one day it no longer wanted to update, it kept me asking for my ex girlfriend's apple id password. It seems to me that the osx is still recognizing her apple id for some apps she downloaded to my computer, but why iPhoto? didn't it came with my MBP?


So I thought that iPhoto was free in the app store, since it came with my MBP, and attempted to delete the app from my computer and redownload it with my apple id (which eventually I could make work for the app store) so that I no longer had to depend on my ex girlfriends id, when it came to the surprise that it was not free. So I no longer have iPhoto and I'm needing it really bad because I bought an iPhone now and can't transfer photos to my computer via photostream.


I would really like to now:


1. How to get back iPhoto and make it upgrade with my ID.

2. How to eliminate all possible traces of my ex girlfriend's ID from my computer.


Thank you before hand.
