    Ghost icon in Windows 10


    After the latest win 10 preview update, I have a ghost icon left from a MUI app in the start menu. App isn't installed, clicking does nothing.

    It's just there with the @{xxxxxxx} crap, and it's actually annoying me.

    I looked in the start menu folders area but Modern apps aren't showing there, so I presume it's in the registry someplace.

    Suggestions on how to remove my ghost?

    I had one that said @{winstore... something. I just right clicked it and selected uninstall. Gone now.
