I really like using dmenu on *nix systems: are there any alternatives for windows?

I've tried launchy, but it is slow and I don't like its interface.

Here are a list of alternatives to Launchy. I recommend you try Enso and Slickrun. Executor looks pretty cool as well haven't tried that one yet.

You can get a new skin for Launchy if you don't like the look and if you want it to be faster I suggest you make you Caps Lock key execute Scroll Lock and set Launchy to open on Scroll Lock

Registry Code to Swap Keys
