Soluto Wants to Make Your PC Less Frustrating, Wins TechCrunch Disrupt for the Effort

Soluto is one of the three companies that survived the first round of TechCrunch Disrupt, and the company eventually came through to win the grand prize of $50,000. {TechCrunch} The Israel based company’s pitch is that it helps relieve you of your PC frustrations. The first place that Soluto will help is during the boot-up period of your Windows PC to make it run faster.

Rather than make it confusing or complicated so that only a few people can access it, Soluto makes it incredibly easy to see what programs are starting when you start up your PC. The beta software will allow users to pause or delay those applications to make the PC boot up faster than usual. To make sure users don’t kill an important program or application, everything is uploaded to a wiki by “techies” who know what they’re doing, making it easy for other users to handle the tasks.
