Is there a replacement for the HORRIBLE IE 7.0 Favorites Menu?

I am reminded of the famous line from Seinfeld:

"Who were the ad-wizards that came up with THIS one...?

Who the heck at MS thought it would be a good idea to force "open" every folder we have on a our Favorites Menu when we want to add a favorite?  I personally have hundreds and finding the right folder is a major headache.  Did some dim bulb in power at M$ actually think this was better?

Anyway, is there a plug-in of some sort I can use that gets me back to the good old way Explorer used to handle Favorites?

You know, it's weird, but EVERYTHING about M$'s latest releases, Vista, IE 7.0 and Office all make everything HARDER to use, if not impossible.  It's like they went on an anti-user binge.

For instance, in Office you used to be able to easily customize shortcut menu bars to your hearts delight using a simple dialog box.  No more, now the only way you can do it is with complicated VB coding that 98% of users will not have access to.

So why?  Why intentionally sabotage some of the best features of your product?  And then they changed the .html engine in Outlook from IE to the Word engine, which doesnt support any technology created since 2002.  Why?
