Classic Shell was the only way Windows 7 and above were usable by me. I've been using the classic start menu, status bar and every "classic" feature since I got into PCs. It's my workflow, I've been doing it for 2 decades now. XP changed the start menu, kept classic features from 95/98 tho...

@Gaurav: That message came up with version 4.3.1 installed. It appeared after I had one of my explorer hangs on login which I manually recovered from (ctrl+alt+del, task manager, restart explorer.exe) instead of letting time out. I updated to it from 4.3.0 after I posted on August 31st. I upgraded t...

Seeing as I can't use Win7+ without classic shell (ui is so atrocious), I can't even troubleshoot to see if it's actually a classic shell issue. Okay, seeing as it started to happen after nearly every damn login, I started to troubleshoot. It is definitely caused by Classic Explorer. I uninstalled ...

Nope, not fixed. Still hangs up at complete random when explorer.exe starts.

Didn't even know an update got released the day before I posted.. could've sworn I checked the site for an update, which is why I replied to the thread.

Now half a month later I find out, ugh! Time to see if it fixes the issue I mentioned.

@DAOWAce, Classic Shell does not even load until after login when Explorer.exe has loaded so it should not affect boot or login in any way. If you think your Explorer.exe is becoming unresponsive, crashing or leaking memory, capture a crash dump as per these instructions: http://www.classicshell.ne...

There are a few known issues as of Windows 10 Creators Update with Classic Shell version 4.3.0: - Taskbar texture issues (fixed in Classic Shell 4.3.1). - Explorer.exe sometimes creates too many COM threads for some reason leading to a freeze and restart of the Explorer process. This issue cannot b...
