"Allows you to analyze your boot time."

Overview

The subject of improving Windows boot times is an endless one, as every Google search on such tips will definitely show you. From disabling boot options that you don’t use in BIOS to skipping the operating system’s routine during loading up, you will find all sorts of advice from users.

On the other hand, most people are not so advanced and prefer the mild approach. This involves simply removing useless software from loading up with your operating system. Soluto is a free startup manager that offers this kind of solution, all wrapped into a beautiful and clean interface. Interested? You should be! Let’s analyze the features of Soluto so that you can assess it for your own needs.

Installation

The setup kit only measures 1Mb in size so you should download it in no time! Soluto requires a reboot of your computer, as it analyzes the boot processes of the system and looks for improvements. You should be happy to find out that Soluto doesn’t come with adware/spyware or other installed programs and it supports the Windows XP, Vista and 7 operating systems.

Interface

One of the best things about Soluto is its excellent interface that manages to break the patterns of the utilities in its category. The interface looks clean and fresh and all the items crowding the boot time of your system are shown. There are certain labeled groups that these programs belong to such as Potentially removable, No-brainer and Required. The danger of messing around with a certain program is shown by a color code. Overall, it is an easy to use a startup manager that will pose no problems even to novice users.

Pros

Soluto watches the programs that load up in Windows when you log onto your computer, as it runs in the background. Then they are analyzed, depending on how long each of them takes, and categorized. The information is based on the Soluto PC Genome, a database comprising of many PC applications that was developed by the company behind the Soluto startup manager. After such a scan, you can see, by category, all the details about a certain program or service and decide whether you want it removed from your startup boot or delayed. By delaying a service, Soluto will allow the program to load but not at boot up time. Soluto works great and in the majority of cases, your boot times are increased by up to 30 seconds!

Cons

There are still some services that are not rated and in order to upgrade you will need to first perform a complete uninstall.

Let’s have a look at some other startup managers out there. The alternatives to Soluto include the following tools: Autoruns, Startup Delayer, MSConfig, Starter and more.

Conclusion

A breath of fresh air among today’s startup utilities, Soluto is an excellent tool that will make your system boot noticeably faster!
