Windows 7: Is there a way to change the start menu application?

Is there a way to change the start menu application?

So I gather that the start menu is directly embedded in explorer, but is it possible to make the start orb launc an application that I use to manage my files instead of the nasty 7 menu? I am using a UX theme and am still not in love with it. TBH, I love winLaunch. I know the mac feel isn't for everyone, but as much as I hate macs work flow its hard to say they are not beautiful. I would like to make it so the start orb instead opens WinLaunch.exe, if possible. Just wanted to ask and be sure. Seems every other windows functionality can be found in System32, maybe Im missing something.

I don't think there is a user accessible way of doing this. It could be done with third party software but I don't know of any.
