    Ivo,

    I have found the problem.

    Windows Defender/MSE /whatever they call it now.

    It thrashes about for a couple of minutes after booting up.

    It is during that time CS computer menu causes explorer freezes/crashes.

    I turned Defender off.

    Problem solved.

    The HD is not a quiet one - I can hear Defender thrashing dementedly around. I can also see ram use in TM up to about 750mb during that time - then it settles to around 400mb.

    People used to complain of something like that in Vista - I never had that problem with Vista - maybe because I never had Defender on.

    No problem in Windows7 - I am using Avast there.

    I think he is getting some sort of pop up or menu from Classic Shell appearing when he first gets to the desktop.

    Like this:

    Click image for larger version


    I am not sure if he has pinned the Settings for Classic start menu to the Metro start screen - then he clicks that to get to desktop - that might explain it.

    Sorry - I have no Japanese - it is not the same as Chinese.

    BTW - CS working great for me now. The problem was MSE #64 other thread

    Yeah, that's a possibility. But it's hard to know from the screenshot, since it may be used to illustrate that the "Disable the start screen popup" setting has been checked.

    Good to know that you got your crash figured out.

    I put a "classic start menu" shortcut to the startup.
    I has been resolved.
    Thank you.

    Hey, guys. I just released Classic Shell 3.5.1. It improves the startup on Windows 8 and skips the Metro screen on login.
