Classic Shell uses the undocumented interface IUserTileStore to get the path to the user image.

Classic Shell simply asks Windows what bitmap to use.
You need to figure out what is the difference between manually setting the picture and running your script. Possibly you can run Process Monitor and see what is written where.

There are countless of reasons for crashes or freezes. You need to capture a crash dump for me to investigate.
As for the thread count issue, so far there are no clues what is causing it. Somebody suggested it may be related to a particular GPO. He was going to try to narrow it down.

The reason there is an option for Windows 7 is that the menu can switch between different modes - show pinned, all programs, search. You may want to have few pinned programs but want to see many results in search mode. The Classic style doesn't do that, so the height is determined purely based on th...

Download the Classic Shell Utility from the bottom of this page: http://www.classicshell.net/downloads/
Run it, then choose the option to manually uninstall. It may ask you to tell it where the installation path was, for example C:\Program Files\Classic Shell.
Follow the prompts, then restart.

Oh, right, you are using Windows 7. This setting is not available on Windows 7, because in this case the status bar comes from Explorer.
On Windows 8 and up, Classic Shell creates its own status bar and can use whatever font it wants. But on Windows 7 the font is decided by Explorer.

Possibly this is some sort of reputation system, similar to smart screen or Norton AV. Once a file is installed by large number of people, it gains reputation that unblocks it.

Try downloading again. I accidentally used the old certificate (the same as 4.3.0) instead of the new one.
It is also possible your problem is related to smart screen or other heuristic that is naturally suspicious of new and unknown software.

As far as I know the Home edition should not have any policies set. See if you can delete the two NoClose that you found. Maybe even having 0 there throws Windows off.
Other than that, no ideas.
