    SFC did not find anything. Previously, I had a problem with the notifications platform and created a new profile, described here: How to reset the Windows Push Notification Platform? - Super User

    I'll look at the Repair Tool, although I'm hesitant to run a third-party tool that claims to fix something.

    The Repair Tool fixed the "All Apps" screen, but not the search results. Interesting...

    Did you reboot after? Try a power reset. Shutdown, unplug from wall socket, take out battery, then push the start button 5-10 seconds so all electricity is out of laptop. Then hook everything back up and boot.

    I have an internal battery that cannot be taken out. I can only disable it in software, I'll try that.

    The power reset had no noticeable effect.

    Have you tried cleaning your search history in PC settings>Search and apps>Search>clear( or use Ccleaner (MS search ticked) if you have it?

    Good idea, but unluckily, no effect.

    The only other thing I can think of is; have you searched for something, clicked it, let it start, close it, search for it again and see if the icon corrects itself.

    Unluckily, this does not correct the icon.
