Publisher's Description

Soluto allows you to understand your boot, discover which applications are slowing it down (and keep running later in the background, affecting your ongoing experience), and allows you to significantly improve it. While Soluto Beta focuses on the boot, it already researches for frustrations and helps map the PC Genome, allowing you to share your wisdom with others.

Brilliant little App that I think should be installed on all newbies machines. The ONLY criticism I have is that it should include a DO NOT REMOVE list to stop it removing certain apps from start-up, but apart from that this program is brilliant

Rubbish - complete 'charah'. Had to use the old fashioned way(s) to fix my booting. This gives Israeli programmers a bad name.

Ugly, worthless & counterproductive.
It'll probably take less startup time loading 400 malwares than this thing.

Another tool for those who need to be hand-held, but this one went extreme with all the eye candy.

I've come to the conclusion that installing a persistent program in the startup menu like Soluto to shorten bootup times is a little like whack-a-mole because Soluto itself adds 2 or 3 seconds to the boot process. The sure fire ways to reduce boot times are:
1. Install a solid state drive
2. Disable unneeded Windows services http://www.blackviper.com
3. Manually remove unneeded startup programs using Microsoft's own msconfig utility.
4. Uninstall unneeded fonts
5. Regularly defragment non-SSD drives

There's no other program on the planet that can make your system boot faster. Soluto can make a Windows PC's cold boot take less time than waking a Macbook up from suspend to RAM.

I preferred version 1.1.1479.0. The new version appears to have been dumbed down to exclude services and some other startup programs, apparently in response to the users who can't figure out whcih startup programs they really shouldnt' be messing with without bricking their OS.

The previous versious found lots of start up apps that did not show up in competing startup managers (like printer drivers and browser addons that slowed Windows startup). I was able to cut my startup time 13 seconds. With this new version fewer startup apps are displayed for tweaking. However, the new "puzzle" pieces slection grid is an improvement over the previous "gradient scale" which made ti too easy for novices to accidentally remove or delay the wrong program. If they continue to simplify the interface but bring back the granularity, this could be a great program.

Wondering if it will have issues with Pro Lasso. Trying it anyway. Looks good from the intelligent reviews for a change.

P.S. :- Very good. It needs time to learn though.

Works fine here :-)

4 PCs (1 XP, 1 Vista, 2 Windows 7). Not a problem with any.

Why even use this ? Hibernate the computer and it is running in about 6 seconds. Windows XP SP3/Vista x64/Windows 7 + 2 gigabyte ram + amd x64 2 gigahertz cpu.

"Anyone who says otherwise either doesn't know what they're doing or is lying."

Say that again to the dozens of people who reported on the support forum that Soluto completely bricked their OS -- most topics haven't even been resolved after six months. Either YOU don't know what you're talking about, or you're a business angel who has specific interest in the program.
