Same here. I also tried to delete the folder from an Administrator CMD, but two files weren't deleted, and the problem is still there.

UPDATE: It still not helped, even my tiles are disapperared. The PowerShell script has shown a lot of red errors.

I did the same and have encountered the same issue.  Unable to delete the "TileDataLayer" folder.

1 - 5 all DONE, but no success, even after a restart; the taskbar does not work.

To complete 5.

- Press Windows Key + R

- Type services.msc and hit enter

- Search for tiledatamodelsvc , right-click and click Stop.

- Now you may delete the TileDataLayer folder entirely

Download Unlocker.exe, try to delete the folder with Unlocker, you 'll see "no success" again, but the taskbar must be working now.

Please halp!

hmmm... I tried all of the above without the unlocker.exe

Not only do I receive an error at the end of running the powershell, but I also cannot locate anything called TileDataLayer...

Any ideas?  I see 3/4 of a taskbar.  I'm using the new Dell with really high res ...
