Soluto – Anti-Frustration Software

The developers claim this program can shave massive time off your boot-up. Has anyone tried it?

Hello RoloDman. I posted the program here a week ago or so. I tried it. I had already manually configured my startup programs.

The pro would be you can add some delay, or delete items if you didn't know how to manually.

The con is it wants to call out to add your decisions to the "community". And as of a week ago it didn't recognize many programs. It didn't know what Avast was, or Comodo firewall. Could it develop into a good resource? possibly, if it is widely adapted. But personally I don''t like programs calling out, I had already configured my startup programs, and continually do so as new ones are added, and I just didn't need it. A Guy

I ran it and it says it found programs in my startup that I do not even have added. Superantispyware is one and that program is not in my startup folder nor is it located in the msconfig startup. Is this strange?

By added, do you mean 'added to start up' that you know of - or added apps that you don't even have installed on your PC?

If it's the former - that's normal. Msconfig does not always show what is set to run at startup.

If it's the latter, and you are sure you don't have that particular app installed, then that is not normal.

Yes, I was referring to the former. i had no idea that some start-up programs would be hidden from msconfig. Kind of stupid IMO that it would not list them all.

Thanks for the help, this thread is solved.

I've noticed that since I installed the new x64 version of SuperAntispyware that I now have SASCore64.exe running in my processes, and it isn't listed in startup. I don't have it set to start with windows. Not worried on that one since it's not a bother.

But Soluto doesn't know what Avast and Comodo are out of the box, they didn't prepare much!

Oh no doubt, I'm not concerned, only mentioned it because it is obviously starting with windows, but doesn't show in "startup". Thanks though

Update: THis is becoming a fantastic program. It works perfectly, finds startup programs (like Real services) that don't show up in msconfig>Startup.

It isn't necessary to keep it scanning at bootup, just uncheck "Live Boot Startup" by rightclicking in System Tray and then Exit and it won't come back until you run it.

Let's just call it a sleek better version of msconfig.
