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.

Double-click "Indexed Locations". Then type the search word in the search field in Explorer. Does it find anything?

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.

When the start menu launches it collects all items from the interesting folders (icons, names, etc).
I think you can get the same crash when you simply view the Control Panel in Explorer.

When you pin a folder, Classic Shell creates a special "folder shortcut" as described here: https://superuser.com/questions/142420/ ... mmand-line
It is a folder that contains a target.lnk file and a desktop.ini file with special contents.

The problem is the control panel applet in C:\Windows\System32\IDTNC64.cpl. Even without Classic Shell, Explorer will crash if you open the control panel.
You need to delete or rename that file.
