We recently took a look at Soluto, the self-proclaimed ‘anti-frustration software’. The application started off by helping to improve Windows’ startup times by analyzing the programs and services that were configured to run automatically and suggesting which were not necessary.
This in itself was nothing new, but the suggestions were community driven, so everyone using Soluto was able to contribute to the improved performance of other users’ systems. The application has now been updated and the latest beta adds new features to speed up your web browser as well as determining the causes of system crashes.
The web browser performance enhancement is achieved by analyzing which plugins and add-ons you have installed and advising you about which are not really necessary or cause the most slow-down. Your browser is also protected as Soluto will warn you about search engine hijkacking and enable you to prevent it.
But the star of the show is the all new crash healer. When an application crashes, you are probably used to seeing an unhelpful error message and the option to send an error report to Microsoft. Soluto’s healing feature replaces this by logging any crashes that occur and providing you with solutions that should hopefully prevent them from happening again.
Just as with startup optimization and browser boosting, crashing healing works on the same cloud community basis. The experiences of other users are used by Soluto when determining the course of action you should take to fix the problems you are experiencing.
Despite being beta software, Soluto seems very stable at this stage. You can find out more and download a free copy of the program by paying a visit to the Soluto review page.
