Try changing the option from "Show Frequent Programs" to "Show Recent Programs" in the "Main Menu" tab of Classic Shell Settings Menu.

I noticed this when I was developing a start menu skin. It may solve your problem,but not sure.

If you are using Windows 10, the Classic Start Menu might be sluggish to open. I experience this too on my Creators Update 64-bit but the cause is not known yet because the menu is extremely fast and fluid on Windows 8.1/7.

You could try disabling your security apps, one by one, at a time. Antivirus apps have been known to interfere with Classic Shell's modifications to Explorer.exe.

@heciluss, Why it happens can be figured out if you create a slowdown dump and post it here so it can be analyzed to find the cause of the sluggishness. Here's how to capture a slowdown dump: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=6 (procdump -n 10 -s 1 explorer.exe)

It can be that the location where the Classic Start Menu writes the cached data is not writable on your PC, or its security permissions got messed up or maybe some security app is blocking it. If the menu cannot write the information to a datacache.db file, it will be slow.
