Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Does PC Boot Up Lag Make You Want To Throw Up?
If you want to pull out your Louisville Slugger and waffle your PC every time you boot up, there may be a FREE solution. Sometimes it seems to take forever to boot up your computer. This is generally due to software applications battling to see who’s up first and who gets the resources.
Soluto is a company that claims to have a solution called PC Boot and they are offering it for FREE. There was a good article on nytimes.com that detailed the companies work. Their goal is to eliminate the frequency and duration of the dreaded Windows hour glass. They feel they can sell these solutions to corporate entities that can benefit due to the cumulative time saved by employees who are now seated, staring aimlessly in space waiting for the blankety blank computer to respond.
I’ve tried their free application. It took my laptop a whopping 6:58 minutes to boot prior to installing their free applications. It took 19.45 minutes after installation to analyze my system and for me to decide which applications really needed to be in my boot up. After running the application it took 2:52 minutes to boot. This is a startling savings of 4:6 minutes. I have not seen any detrimental behavior in the laptop since running PC Boot. Anything that frees up my time is of value. You may want to check out this free application.
