Make PCs less frustrating?

"The idea behind Soluto is to use the experience of thousands (or, ultimately, millions) of PC users to approximate the knowledge that a Windows expert gathers by trial and error. The software—currently in beta and free for the download—runs as a background service that watches your PC as it works, detecting slowdowns and trying to analyze the cause. By comparing those events and possible causes against a database of apps, drivers, and other software (cleverly called the PC Genome), the software can suggest solutions that you can implement with a click or two."

This looks very interesting and helpful if it works.

Instead of wading through guides claiming to boost performance, this app analyzes and checks against database, then makes suggestions on improving start-up performance.

Looks good, and hopefully it works!

However, I am still more inclined to do that trial and error thing. Let's just say that it adds some juice to my ego.

But this kind of program would be great for new PC users who really doesn't have any idea about what to do once a problem occurs with their OS.

Have you tried it out?

No, I was thinking more for new users too!

But it is still beta at the moment.

Re: Make PCs less frustrating?

Alright, I installed the software on my play system and so far I have been testing it for about 3 days now...

First verdict - the software is perfect for new users. It provides you with a GUI of msconfig, and will be able to pause or remove from the boot up process startup items that are not needed by the system to speed it up. Not only that, it provides you with information on what is safe to remove, and what is required by the system.

So far so good. Still, the software really is perfect for new users of PC, or does who do not know what they are doing specially in configuring their own system.

Will post another update in 3-5 days. I will try to simulate a problem or common frustration of normal PC users and see if the program will be able to recommend the best solution. Though, I do not have any high expectation that this program. We'll see...
