"Failed with 0x490 modifying AppModel Runtime status" caused by phantom Computer

(My problem seems similar to

 I have installed Windows 10 Home x64 on a new PC. Under Network on all my Windows PCs, I now see a mysterious "DESKTOP-ERQCEBP" computer that doesn't match the name of any of my Windows PCs. The node is empty when I open it.

That name resolves to an IPv6 address

Pinging DESKTOP-ERQCEBP [fe80::7c03:22cc:4cbe:e983%5] with 32 bytes of data:

 That "computer" is causing a lot of Event Viewer errors that look like:

Failed with 0x490 modifying AppModel Runtime status for package Microsoft.<package name> for user DESKTOP-ERQCEBP\<my username> (current status = 0x0, desired status = 0x20).

The username is the same as what I use on the new PC, so it looks like the "computer" is some sort of virtual service on the new PC.

 Here's a full post of one of the errors.

Is there a way to remove the phantom IPv6 computer and stop the errors? Should I just disable IPv6?

Question Info

I think I solved the issue after reading this answer.

"DESKTOP-ERQCEBP" must have been the original name Windows 10 assigned the PC before I changed it. For whatever reason Windows kept an IP v6 DNS entry for the old name even after I changed it. Running the commands mentioned in the above answer got rid of the Network entry and the Event Viewer errors.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
