Classic Shell is a High Risk and has been BLOCKED.

Uninstall McAfee and use another anti-malware if you want to use Classic Shell. McAfee is being stupid, it's a false positive probably because Classic Shell's installer uses compression to reduce its size or maybe McAfee is using reputation-based method to false assume that it is dangerous.

Classic Shell does not do anything malicious, it only adds a Start Menu and functionality to Explorer and IE.

Does it complain about the installer or about a particular already installed component? Can you give me the file name that is identified as risky?
