All of his software is free & most of it very useful, he has never used ad's - This guy deserves 5 stars even if you can find petty reasons not to like the launcher.
Before you start knocking stars off read all of this:

I love Nir software, but I could do almost the most the same things by downloading and putting them all into a folder.
-1 Star for not having all Nir Apps in it.
-1 Star for not trying to help hide your nir software. 7z or RAR with no compression will hide from most antivirus until you load the software, extracting to run wlll at least disperse the warnings instead of giving you 50 (just making up a number) of warnings at once, and take up almost no extra programming effort. Using a specific folder for that would make adding an exclusion rule easy as it already is (yet still annoying).
-1 Star because if this program was perfect, it would find a way to randomly encode each file differently on install, and avoid all the false positives completely. Perhaps doing this in one database type of file so it's not just an incomplete gui.
==Conclusion: This program is lucky I didn't take off another Star since I could have made the same thing in VBScript using a HTA file, and it would be better then this. Look nicer and be more customizable while friendlier to use at the same time. another 1-2 hours later it would be dynamically pull every app and description on the webpage so it always had everything up to date, if though so chose.

NirLauncher is continually great software, each utility does what it says it does without any frills.
I have to agree with DrTeeth though, as I've learned from experience there's little point in contacting the developer (Nir Sofer). On the few occasions I've contacted him about a bug or a wish-list suggestion he's never even acknowledged the correspondence.
