To troubleshoot Classic Shell installation or uninstallation process, there is a separate tool called Classic Shell Utility. It can create troubleshooting logs, remove your Classic Shell settings or completely erase all traces of Classic Shell from your system. It also has a feature to show the Metro color palette for creating skins.

For those who are having problems uninstalling or upgrading Classic Shell, the feature to remove Classic Shell from your computer in case the normal uninstall process doesn't work can be useful.

The utility will manually delete the installed files and will repair the registry. There are options to keep or delete all your settings.

You can download the utility from here: http://www.classicshell.net/downloads/

4.3.0 doesn't work with Win 10 build 1703. The utility is no help. It's time for a new version.

What exactly doesn't work for you?

I don't know about StrongThanDirt but I have the problem that the "most used apps" menu is and stays empty (that's the one you see when open the start menu with the "all apps" entry at the bottom) after you upgrade to Windows 1703. A simple uninstall and reinstall doesn't solve the issue. I didn't tried the Utility yet. If you install Classic Shell after a) upgrading to 1703 or b) doing a fresh installation of 1703 including it's first cumulative update it works as intended. That cumulative update somehow breaks something.

Nevermind. Just found viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7477. Will try it on Monday.

I'm using v4.3.0

I'm also using insider Windows 10 build 16251.

When at build 16199 Classic Shell worked just fine. When build 16251 came out, Classic Shell stopped working.


When I rebooted the system after the update, the desktop loads, there is a short pause of about 2-3 seconds and
the desktop reloads again, and again. Stuck in a loop. The old "three finger salute" will get me to Task Manager
so I can get out of the loop, then remove Classic Shell and all is fine with this build. I tried re-installing Classic Shell
several times, and it loads, but goes into the loop.


Any Ideas anyone ?

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.

Thanks Ivo, I had that file and deleting it helped. Bloody Windows 10. :evil:
