Is the program pinned to the taskbar or the start menu? That would prevent it from showing in the list.

This is on purpose. The update has not been rolled out yet, in case there are some serious issues with the new version. I will probably turn it on this weekend.

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.

In almost all cases like this it was caused by the IDT audio control panel. It is not compatible with Windows 10. See if you have a file named "idtnc64.cpl" in C:\Windows\System32, and if so, delete it.

Classic Shell gets the paths from Windows. It may not be enough to change the user folder in the registry - there is also the location of the start menu, pictures, documents, etc.

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.
