There is no such thing as Classic Desktop. The desktop is part of Windows. It will stay the same even after you remove Classic Shell. Only the start menu will change.

Does the search from the Windows menu work?
Classic Shell uses the indexing service to find the settings. The folder with the settings is %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-US
See if it is enabled for indexing.

The helper DLL does more than just update it's COM registration.
It hooks into Explorer in a special way to make it possible for the start menu to launch as soon as you log in, not after 10 seconds (like other auto-start programs).
That registration is lost between Windows updates.

Since uninstalling Classic Shell doesn't solve your problem, it is very likely something got messed up in Windows itself.
You need to register StartMenuHelper64.dll if you are using 64-bit Windows.
ClassicStartMenuDLL.dll is not a COM DLL, so it doesn't need registration.

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.
