    I saw this unknown app in notification+actions. Is this virus and can this be removed? And very recently my tiles on start screen appear late as I scroll up or down. I think this unknown may be the reason. And I have never e encountered such application before.
    Any idea?

    Cheers.

    Have you recently uninstalled an app? I have experienced this in my phone right after uninstalling an app. However, it should disappear after a while. The lag you are experiencing could also be post-un-installation clean-up processes running in the further background of tasks (further back in the background than the background tasks that can be customized in the settings).

    If you had a snapchat client that, may be why.

    The customized settings I'm referring to is under Settings > battery saver > swipe to "usage". Here you can select which apps are allowed to run in the background. However, the background post-uninstallation processes run further background and cannot be customized since these are at the OS level (as opposed to app level).

    You could restart your phone if you want to immediately get rid of that registry-key-looking piece of text from your notification settings.

    Although this is not creating any problem but while scrolling and app tiles appearing late does irritate a little bit...

    It's the GUID of an app incorrectly installed/uninstalled. Check settings or your app list to see if you can find something similar to it, like a string of numbers

    Well in that case, wait for the app to be cleared from that list automatically but I highly doubt that would happen. I once had the extras+info update gone bad. I couldn't uninstall it because it showed the GUID in the settings and applist. I didn't have much choice but to hard reset

    Hard reset is totally out of the window.

    Try installing the same app again, and then uninstall it again.
