So I put in the  2 shot basket with or without coffee and it sprays.
The same with the single shot.
If I use the pressurized basket it works fine.

Any ideas?

Sprays from where exactly? The bottom of the basket, the bottom of the PF, over the edge of the PF, somewhere else?????

I suspect you have the pressurized and non-pressurized baskets confused.  If you don't have the black pin in the bottom of the portafilter when using the pressurized baskets, the Classic makes a mess.  The Classic comes with 2 pressurized filter baskets (a single and a double) and 1 non-pressurized double-shot basket (at least that's how mine came in the USA).

In the image below, 1 & 2 are non-pressurized and 3 & 4 are pressurized.  The black pin is required with the pressurized baskets, otherwise you will get the spraying.

Ahh, yes, good point. I was thinking about a repair type problem. Yep, the baskets w/ the single small hole are intended to be used w/ the little plastic piece stuck into the portafilter itself to tame down that flow.
