What happens when you press the Win key?
What happens if you click on the desktop and press Alt+F4?

It is possible the settings are messed up. Open Explorer window, go to Program Files\Classic Shell, run the Start Menu Settings shortcut, and then use the Backup button to reset the settings.

I managed to get it back by doing last update for win 8.1

I could not do restore on any of the system restore files, nothing worked

I uninstalled your program
I am stuck with original now, I am too afraid to put it back

I managed to get into control panel by clicking on action center icon in tray, somehow, then I did win update and now at least it is working but without your program sadly

I figured it out how to get my start menu button back.

I opened Explorer, went to program files, Classic Shell, Start Menu Settings, And I had to check to add the start menu button again.
Now I can access my apps from start menu and life is good again.
