Shave down your Windows boot time with latest Soluto beta

By Tim Conneally, Betanews

In FileForum, We’re hosting a piece of freeware you may have heard about after it became the first TechCrunch Disrupt Cup winner back in May, Soluto.

Soluto, in short, lets users quickly and easily customize the Windows boot process by breaking applications into three categories: Ones that are completely unnecessary to the boot process, ones that are potentially removable, and ones that are absolutely necessary to boot Windows. Soluto collects anonymous user data to give you an idea of what other users do with their applications, so if you have a piece of software that lots of other people pause during startup, you’re presented with a pie chart telling you what percentage pauses, and what percentage keeps it in the boot process.

In this latest beta version (1.1.10960,) you can instantly kill Soluto after your PC has started up, search for- and filter applications by name.
