How about DeskPins?

DeskPins was so great but the link has died now :( – Nam G VU Aug 16 '13 at 3:54
The downloadable link can be found here… which has been virus-scanned by virustotal here… – Nam G VU Aug 16 '13 at 6:33

You could use AutoHotKey!

    WinSet, AlwaysOnTop,,A

Would set the currently active window to always on top when you hit winkey and q. If for whatever reason you don't fancy installing AutoHotKey (It's lovely, really!) leave a comment with what hotkey you want, and I can compile a standalone script you can use on any PC :)

Thank you, I'm using AutoHotKey myself. Just that i haven't installed it since the last format. Tried your file and it works great :D – altvali Mar 6 '10 at 23:28
@altvali; Glad to help! AHK is something I find it hard to live without, now! – Phoshi Mar 6 '10 at 23:42
