Soluto’s goal is to bring an end to the frustrations PC users encounter.
 

Soluto developed technology that tackles this problem from two different

directions:

Frustration detection
 

Our patent-pending low level driver technology detects

when you’re frustrated by your PC and tells you which

application is causing it.

Power of the crowd
 

Soluto harnesses the power of the crowd to learn

which actions really eliminate frustrations and improve

user experience, and leverages this user wisdom for

the benefit of all PC users.

By using Soluto’s software, you’re putting a whole

community of PC power-users at your desk to help

you improve your PC experience.

Funny you should mention this. I saw it today and thought I'd give it a try. Big mistake. It sent my comp into an endless start loop. Had to start in safe mode (and delete with Revo from there) and system restore with Erunt. And no, I didn't do anything strange with the installation. I just installed it. Maybe my experience is a one-off, I don't know. But it's worth letting people know that it might cause them problems.

 I've decided to give it a try on my XP machine after reading this:

 

http://www.zdnet.com/blog/bott…..ating/2164

After reading the author's explaination, I find it to be a pretty decent concept.

But apparently quite a few people are having problems with it… I'll try my luck.

 

@PcBasics: Thanks for the post.

The article states

"For each software component in the top two lists, it offered the option to pause the automatic startup process or delay it."

I believe AnVir or Win Patrol does this too.

It also states

"its recommendations have been reasonable and conservative."

That is fine if you are award-winning technology writer with more than two decades' experience writing for mainstream media outlets and online publications,

as it is stated about the writer of this article, but what about the average end user? How would they know what is reasonable and conservative?

Just asking….

None the less, I look forward to your "plain speak" assessment of the software.

Note, this is Beta.
Worked fine on my XP. Told me I could save about 30 seconds at system boot, if I was to stop a few programs from starting automatically. I needed them all so I didn't go any further. Reminds me a bit of Bootvis.

Yeah, I know. That's why I d/led and installed it. As I said, it might just be some anomaly with my comp. I'm happy that others are not having the same issues.

I've tried it also on XP sp3… no problem.Laugh
I could earn 2 seconds on boot. Frown

Plus if I suppressed all the programs I installed and wich launch themselves at start … but I knew that of course.Wink
On the other hand, it's another program that adds itself to startup. Where is the gain?Yell
It is not worth the trouble !

Uninstalled without problem also.Laugh
