Submission + - Anti-frustration software for Windows (soluto.com)

alexo writes: Soluto, an Israeli start-up, aims to solve one of the problems that plagues all computer users: poor computer performance. As its first service, the company is offering a free (as in beer) program that analyzes the boot process and identifies applications and processes that may be removed or delayed to speed up Windows' start-up. To find the source of the slowdowns, Soluto uses a statistical approach, "The PC Genome", which they describe as "a huge knowledgebase of PC frustration data, built automatically through the usage of Soluto software. Its objective and statistical information, gathered and analyzed by Soluto, is also editable by the community."
