I've used autoruns for years now as it's the only application I know that seems to show everything but it is a little intimidating for those without a bit of experience - worthwhile having available for anyone who wants to know what's really going on in the box

I did use a start-up delayer with XP and Vista for a while as it enabled me to get to a working desktop a bit quicker - rather than the normal free for all with all the start-up processes fighting for cycles.

With win7 there doesn't seem to be the "bottleneck" there used to be

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.

Problem with Soluto

I found, on my system, Soluto causes Windows Explorer to be very unstable. Explorer itself restarts time after time. Nothing destructive happens, but it is a monumental pain.
By process of elimination, after a cold boot, I found it was Soluto causing it. After I removed the program, the problem went away.

My system is a "roll your own" homebuilt. The salient points: Biostar MoBo with an Intel 775 Core 2 Duo 2.2 CPU, an Nvidia 8400 1GB GPU vid board by Gforce, 3GB memory, 2TB on four HHD, Windows 7 Ultimate.

I do a lot of conversion and burning of video, We're really into old movies. By "old" I mean 1930's and 40's which are contemporary to us (I'm 79). This rig is cobbled, I know, but it does what I want.

First, I'm also a big fan of old movies, so I'm personally hurt by this problem. The symptoms you describe are very bothering, would you by any chance be willing to spare a few minutes and help us find out what's causing this? I would greatly appreciate it if you would drop us a note at support[at]soluto[dot]com and mention this thread. To paraphrase, I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Sorry and thank you,

Soluto my experience.

not a computer geek so not up on all the technical bits a bobs, just a silver surfer who is really ok and comfortable with a computer. Been using Soluto for a while. Agree that is probably no better than doing it yourself manually but for someone who may be a little afraid of screwing up something that is already working ok i think it serves a purpose. Doesn't seem to do any harm so that;s ok.

Disappointed with the new version. Thought the "Tidy up your web Browser" bit (whatever that's called) might be good but it doesn't show mine. What I mean is my default browser is Google Chrome but Soluto is only showing IE and Firefox. Odd unless I've got a setting wrong somewhere.

it may be a programme that eventually becomes quite useful so lets wait and see.

Iv'e got the reverse problem. It sees Chrome which is my default browser but not Firefox or IE which I use occasionally. I just installed it today so maybe it will take some time to find the others. After configuring the boot options it has done a bit more than I did manually so the jury is still out on this.


I found the other browsers they were hiding off to the side.

Soluto
After reading several comments endorsing this program, I decided to give it a try. I'm not fond of the idea that it transmits data online elsewhere for analysis, but I didn't read that until I had installed it. Therefore, since I already have it, it seemed prudent to give it a try anyway. The...
