Agree. Start8 works.

Another approach is to plant the start menu into the taskbar.  Follow the first method in the attached article.

I recomend trying Classic Shell.
The settings so far have been extermiley stable, the developer is  always updating, and resoleing any issues their end user find.

Best of all, It's Free!! Virus Free!!

All they ask, is if you like how it functions, they have a option for you to make contributions for all there hard work.

The latest version can be found on Source Forge:

Report problems in the Classic Shell bug tracker:
