Hi,
I have a problem with the classic shell extension. I installed it and it runs fine. (Windows 8.1)
But every time I reboot and then click on the start button, the standard metro start menu opens,
instead of the classic shell menu. When I go into the classic shell settings and simply click OK and leave the settings,
everything is back to normal (classic shell). Any ideas how I can change that?

Help is much appreciated!

Download the Classic Shell Utility from here: http://www.classicshell.net/downloads/
Run it and send me the log file.

It is not loading at startup. Just put a shortcut to C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\ClassicStartMenu.exe in your Startup folder at C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
