    have you recently upgrade from windows phone 8.1? this has happened to me to when i first upgraded form 8.1 . these are system app notifications which due to a glitch is displayed only in code. there is nothing to worry , but to resolve this, hard reset is the way.

    Yes i did an update from 8.1. When i do a hard reset and restore from a backup, will the notifications also come back?

    try a soft reset first and see if any apps are still pending for updates in store - also check for OS updates

    There are 4 types of Reset...
    • Soft Reset
    • Hard Reset
    • Factory Reset
    • WDRT


    Soft Reset is holding the Volume Down & Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 15 seconds). This reboots the phone with a cleared out RAM and Cache. No data is lost. It is good for when the phone freezes or you experience a glitch of some sort.


    Hard Reset really should be a last resort. Use Hard Reset when the phone is completely unresponsive and no other method will work.
    • Power off the phone > hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down
    • Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down
    • You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery. You do loose data, but get your phone back. Sign into your Microsoft Account and restore your backup during the set up.


    Factory Reset is Done through Settings > About > Reset your phone (8 & 8.1) or Settings > System > About > Reset your phone (W10M).

    • You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery. You do lose data, but get your phone back. Sign into your Microsoft Account and restore your backup during the set up.


    In case of Hard Reset & Factory Reset the phone goes back to the exact version you were running when you performed the reset.


    WDRT For right now, Windows Device Recovery Tool is only flashing 8.1 to models that did not launch with 10 so it is the way to revert if you don't care for W10M: Windows Device Recovery Tool FAQ
