Try installing Classic Shell again, then reboot, then uninstall it again.
You can do all of that from Task Manager's File -> New Task.

I had/have this same problem, but didn't have any idea what was causing it. If it happens again, I will try uninstalling Classic shell.

@brad1138, you are consistently getting a black screen with only a mouse pointer and nothing else upon reboot?

No, it happened twice during the multiple restarts I had as I was installing Windows 10 (clean, and other software) on my daughters computer. It hasn't happened in a few days now, it started starting up perfectly after the latest significant update installed.

The issue of windows 10 black screen with cursor is mainly caused because of incompatibility of the graphic driver with windows 10 since it was a huge update on Microsoft's part. Updating the graphic drivers is one way to resolve the issue and as per your post you have already done it. Another solution is that if you have two graphic cards, you disable the onboard one. Let me know if this helps you out.
