Soluto is presented as “anti-frustration software”, and it really helps getting rid of frustration – at least the frustration of having to wait while rebooting your PC. With Soluto you can improve the computer’s start-up time by removing unnecessary applications from the system’s boot-up sequence. But don’t let these technological terms scare you away: Soluto is, in fact, the easiest, simplest start-up analyzer we’ve ever seen. After installing it, all you need to do to use Soluto is restart your system. The program calculates the time your system takes to boot up completely, and shows you a colorful, animated report divided into three main areas: required components that can’t be removed (in gray), potentially removable components (in orange) and programs you can easily get rid of (in green).
