Looks like your explorer is crashing. There are countless of reasons for crashes to happen. You need to provide a crash dump to investigate.

The bitmap can be any size, however the recommended is 16x16 for normal resolution and 24x24 for high DPI skins.

Sure, but that's the design of the skin. It reduces the height of the right hand side when small icons are selected so you can fit more items. You have two options - edit the skin to not do that, or keep using the "large icons" mode but reduce the size of the large icons to 16x16. Both opt...

Yes, that's the correct resource. But it is a 32-bit bitmap with transparency. The blue bar you see is not the entire image. There is transparent border around it.

The bitmap has alpha channel for transparency. You need to edit it using software that understands transparency, like Photoshop or Paint .NET.

I don't see anything obvious in the dumps. The Classic Shell code is not doing anything at this time. There is some COM activity trying to communicate with another process, probably the UWP brokers.

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.

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.

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.

It is also possible your problem is related to smart screen or other heuristic that is naturally suspicious of new and unknown software.
