    I seem to have a dangling Windows 8.x store icon half-deleted on my system.. anyone else see this?

    The Tile shows as:

    winstore_1.0.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy

    I figure this is the old store, now replaced by Windows 10's Store App... but how do we uninstall this hideous icon?

    I was looking into PowerShell but it doesn't find it to remove. I found the entry in the Registry but it's not letting me delete it.
    Maybe safemode? anyone here ran a script or was able to manually remove this?

    Not causing issues, but it's like a pimple staring at you.. you just want to pop it.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Well, I also have the issue of some of my 8.1 windows app still showing after updating to 10130. I updated to 10147, still there. Then I updated to 10158 and some of them are gone. Waiting to update to 10159, probably they will all be gone by then.
    So you can probably do updates to see if the issue is resolved.
