    Phantom app in start menu

    In the start menu I have item named @{Microsoft.WindowsFeedback_10.0.10586.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy?ms-resource://Microsoft.WindowsFeedback/FeedbackApp.Resources/Appname/Text} which can not be deleted nor launched.

    App is not on the get-appxpackage's list also. How do I get rid of it?

    So this is the odd app showing in start menu with several other missing apps .

    Now few forums suggested this to be a sign of corruption example here .

    So forums suggested too that there is a tool to fix corruptions called Start Menu Troubleshooter which wasn't easy to find .

    Like always all MS Troubleshooters it managed to state the obvious :

    So searching on for means to fix the corruption since Microsoft was vague enough about this I came across this page here :
    The odd thing is my old profile has an XML based setting file and empty database folder :
