In the case your Master Boot Record has been altered, or removed (as happened to me with the fake version of Classic Shell), you can fix it. If you never made an Emergency Boot Disk from your operating system? and in that you can't boot up? You will have to find someone with a Windows OS - 7 worked...

My FINAL solution was to use an older Windows 7 Emergency Boot CD, where none of the command line tools fixed it? I finally noticed the top 1 of 6 menu items 'Fix Startup Problems' - and phew - even though it's Windows 10 (as I thought 8 and 10 were major changes with MBR from 7), it did fix it. Ca...

Here's what happened. The download mirror service called FossHub, where Classic Shell stores its downloads, got hacked earlier today. This was intended to coincide with the release of Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which would cause many people to have to download the latest Classic Shell. The inst...

I figured I'd create a thread on this, as this was the cause of my system never rebooting. It seems according to another user in the forums the Classic Shell download links were misdirected or somehow included this virus. Your machine will boot up with a 'spade' character bottom left at startup - an...

I wasn't happy to see my machine auto rebooted - losing my work while I slept But I realized this was the Windows 10 Anniversary update. So it finally comes back, and I ask myself ? Where is my ClassicShell? So I remember a notification yesterday a new CS is available. I go to install it, nothing bu...
