    I've deleted the live tile. Deleted history from browser settings. Synced with zune. Deleted all my apps but the games and redownloaded them.
    I think it started occuring after mango on my focus. At first it was 5 and about each time an update occurs it goes up 1. I am able to update apps fine but after I update the number goes away then a couple hours later it comes back with +1. Now it tells me I had 14 updates on the live tile until i click on it and nothing is there.

    Same thing happens with me. And yes, it started with Mango.

    It's not a huge deal to me, as it doesn't affect my daily use, but it is a strange bug.

    Ok i'll just leave it alone then just making sure it wasn't just me. Just a little annoying because it gets my hopes up for app updates then I click on it and :( .

    I actually just noticed this today myself. I thought it happened once before but wasn't sure. I had a notice there were 3 updates. When I tapped the marketplace app, there were only 2. I updated and it still showed I had 1 left. That notice went away after awhile.

    I don't know if this might help you but I somehow noticed this bug as well:

    Whenever I get new updates, I do the usual thing: Tap on Marketplace, then tap on the "# updates" notice, then "update all" but here's the key factor; instead of tapping the home button, just go back home by tapping the back button till you get there and the update number will be gone, if you don't do this and just tap on the Windows logo, the number of update will remain there on the live tile (or at least that's what ALWAYS happens to me)

    I had this too, but an on/off power cycle seemed to fix it.

    Mine is the Sprint Arrive. Next time it does it, I'll try the trick and see if it works. I do notice it eventually goes away no matter what.

    I had the same issue with the tile always saying 5. Then I would get a new update and it would go to 6. I would start marketplace update the one update and the number would go away. Later on the 5 would return.

    I hard rebooted my phone (hold power then swipe down) then removed the battery. When it started up it still said 5. However when I started marketplace it showed 5 updates! woot!
