I'm using win7 64bit and a custom visual style that doesn't work properly with Classic Shell. Look at the screenshots below, one is my desktop, which shows that the explorer skin is working fine, but not the start menu and taskbar. The other screenshot is what the theme should look like. I have tried all the custom skins within Classic Start Menu settings with no avail. I remember a different theme wasn't working with CS either.
