I've no opinion on GiveawayOfTheDay, but just wanted to say that True Launch Bar is an awesome piece of software. Along with File-Ex, it's become a core part of my system, to the point that a Windows installation feels bare and awkward without it. It's way more convenient than the Start menu, can be used easily via the keyboard, and has never caused me any problems, as some shell enhancements can. Check out the site for the various plugins (free once you have a licensed TLB). It's updated fairly often and can be customized to no end.

I'm only missing one feature, a more capable implementation of "virtual folders". Currently you can create virtual folders which become menus displaying the content of a physical folder, optionally with a filter. An improvement would be to virtualize the concept entirely, so that a virtual folder in TLB could be a collection of links to arbitrary filesystem objects anywhere on the machine. Even then, TLB is really fantastic, especially the keyboard navigation (you can assign hotkeys that open menus), and how it can pop up on moseover (no need to click).
