What is Advanced Onion Router?
Advanced Onion Router is a portable client for OR network and is intended to be an improved alternative for Tor+Vidalia+Privoxy bundle for Windows users. It is able to "force" a program and its plugins to use the Tor proxy regardless of its configured proxy.
Some of the improvements include UNICODE paths, support for HTTP and HTTPS proxy protocols on the same Socks4/Socks5 port with HTTP header filtering that generates fake identity-dependent headers every time the identity is changed (proxy chains are also supported), support for NTLM proxies, a User Interface that makes Tor's options and actions more accessible, local banlist for forbidden addresses, private identity isolation, a point-and-click process interceptor that can redirect connections from programs that don't support proxies, also giving them fake information about the local system and support for .onion addresses. Also, it can estimate AS paths for all circuits and prevent AS path intersections, it can restrict circuits to be built using only nodes from different countries, can change circuit lengths and more.

Aside from a slightly haphazard GUI, the function and effectiveness are excellent
It will be a little daunting to start with, so read the documentation
One can build a list of programs that will make use of the routing, and launch them directly from the tasktray icon or just set the proxy information to match that provided. Also, any running program can be 'captured' - any estabilshed network connections wil be severed - all subsequent connections will be routed
Note that the child processes of 'captured' programs will also be captured, i.e.: if you click a link that invokes a handler program, that handler will also be routed
