Windows 10: Microsoft Store Hell Corner Solved

    Microsoft Store Hell Corner


    I have 2 laptops running windows 10 version 1709 that managed to develop issues almost the same time :

    Laptop 1 : Lately managed to hide a lot of store apps icons and tiles from start menu but I can still run them from store itself also leaving at the bottom of start screen a non operational app called ms-resource:appDisplayName .

    Laptop 2 : Lately managed to stuck at load screen of ALL apps and never proceed .

    I have tried :
    1 - Microsoft Store Troubleshooter from here (Nothing)
    2 - Signing off then back on to Store (Nothing)
    3 - Wsreset Command (Nothing)
    4 - Reinstalled Apps (Same thing)
    5 - Tried Tweeking.com Windows Repair AIO , tried Store Fix , Permissions Fix , Services Permissions Fix , Then All Fixes (Nothing)
    6 - Updated graphics drivers

    Now I am running out of options , what else is suggested ?

    Edit :
    Thanks to Josey Wales Laptop to is now fixed by applying his suggested command :
    Try running the below from an elevated CMD Prompt.

    Code:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase



    Now I'm down to fixing Laptop 1 , further googling and they even have a name for my case , it's called :
    Phantom App and they mention it's a glitch that surfaced with build 1709 and has no fix , but that was on vanilla forums . So any suggestions ?
