    Corrupt tile database


    Having tried all reasonable suggestions I can find here and elsewhere, I've had to open this problem up as a new thread.

    My Start button/icon will not open my profile start menu/apps. Winver is Windows 10 Home 1902 (Build 18362.116). Checkdsk/SFC/DISM report no errors. ISO refresh and repair was successful. Start Troubleshooter reports a corrupt file database. No other errors reported. I've tried various registry suggestions like clearing the cache and resetting the layout but without success. I created a new user account which does not have an issue with the Start menu.

    I'm left with the conclusion that my current profile is corrupt in some manner. I read that copying the tile database from the "good" new user account to my current account will solve this issue but the TileDataLayer folder does not exist in the "good" new account. I've also read that copying the entire profile contents of the "good" new user to my my current account will solve the issue but this seems a very heavy hammer and much to lose. There must be a specific corruption or associated corrupt files that is causing the issue rather than a totally corrupt current account. I have no other issue with the PC or my current user account than what is reported (and unfixed) by the Start Troubleshooter.
    Suggestions most welcome, as always.

    :)

    Start Menu corruption: "Tile database is corrupt"


    Thanks for your reply. I tried both methods, but unfortunately no success in fixing my tile database corruption.

    Let me know if you have any other suggestions.

    Otherwise, I can live with the problem as-is since it is relatively minor.

    Start Menu corruption: "Tile database is corrupt"


    Since updating Windows 10 to version 1803, I noticed that at the bottom of my Start Menu there is a category "Other" and one item under that category listed as "ms-resource:appDisplayName". When I click on it, it opens a page in Windows Store where I can check for app updates. I figured this is not quite right, so I downloaded and executed Microsoft's Start Menu troubleshooter. It came back with "tile database is corrupt" and "not fixed".

    So I then researched and attempted some manual fixes on the tile database, but no success. This involved creating a new user account, and then copying and replacing the corrupted database with a clean database from the newly created user account. For whatever reasons, that did not change anything.

    I have also successfully executed Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth. And sfc /scannow reports no integrity violations.

    I do not have any other issues with the Start Menu, so I think I can live with it as-is. But if there is a relatively easy way to repair it, I'd like to try.

    I understand I could do a reset of my Windows 10 install, but that is more than I want to do to address this relatively minor issue.

    Thanks for any info.

    Start Menu troubleshooter says Tile Database is corrupt?

    As referred to in the title, SMT tells me the Tile Database is corrupt, but nothing appears to be wrong with it, and no repairs I've tried have fixed the issue.
