Hey all, At the start and middle of this year, I posted on here about issues I was having with Classic Shell crashing explorer on Windows 10. A lot of others chimed in too, saying that they were having similar issues. I was using 4.3.0 but I've now updated to 4.3.1 and I'm miffed to say that I'm sti...

Exactly. Better for us, than a frozen desktop.


Eh, I work in a school too and this isn't really a practical solution.

I love classic shell but force restarting explorer every 10 minutes is going to drive teachers mad...

We were having exactly the same issues BigDog, everytime you think you're actually getting somewhere... it freezes again. Thanks for looking into it, really interested to see if you find anything...

Did you have any success with this? I am in the same boat regarding the need to lock down the start menu and am experiencing the same freezing issue. No sorry, I wish :? We've just gone back to the basic Windows 10 start menu which we're still having issues with... We've finally figured a way to in...

Sorry for not responding for a while on this to my question. I have never had a problem with is working as an administrator, but with a pupil/teacher with GPOs in place, it seems to crash. I did slowly remove the GPOs to see if it was one of these, but to no avail. Even with no GPOs the standard us...

Thank you for all your responses. Whether Windows 10 is worse or better is not something I really have a say in, it's the latest operating system and therefore the school would like to use it on all our computers. I know it has its faults although I've been using it at home for a year or so now and ...

I have now uploaded a crash dump to the MediaFire filedrop service. Should be entitled 'CosmicThing2 - Crash Dump Explorer' or something similar. I took 30 dumps in total but there's 20 in the zip, all taken by the procdump tool. This shows the last 20 seconds leading up the freeze. Once frozen, exp...

Does this happen only on Windows 10, and not earlier releases of Windows? If the reason of the freezing cannot be determined, you might consider moving back to an older release of Windows? Is there any particular feature why you moved to Windows 10? You could try Windows 8.1 with Classic Shell whic...

Does it work, as an Admin User OK, but as a pupil (with I presume GPO restrictions in place) it then hangs? Nope, hangs as either user. I can literally watch the threads in Resource Monitor - it starts out fine (80-90 threads) and then at some arbitrary point within 5 minutes, it'll suddenly start ...

Getting the exact same issue here. Our set up is in a Secondary School and our explorer keeps freezing at 800 threads. Did you solve the issue or are you just not using Classic Start Menu for now?

Hey there, I'm an IT Technician for a Secondary School. After installing Windows 10 and trying (and failing) to customize the Windows 10 start menu via the xml file, we instead chose to try Classic Shell. The main thing we want to ensure is that our students cannot access system settings, program fi...
