If you have ever stared at a spinning wheel or hourglass image on your computer and wondered what was taking so long, you're not alone. That "hanging moment" that we experience with our technology is one of the most frustrating parts of using a computer--something is happening behind the scenes, but you have no idea what it is. Worse yet, you can't do anything but wait until it finishes before you can get on with whatever you wanted to do in the first place.
A company called Soluto shares your pain. Instead of secretly fuming about it, though, they have created a software program that will help demystify what is actually happening with your PC. Their Anti-Frustration Software is an aptly titled downloadable program that will help pinpoint the specific "power hogging" application on your computer that is causing the slowness, helping you to isolate and remove it or shut it down.
More interestingly, the software relies on the power of user-contributed experiences to create a vast database on which actions really eliminate frustrations and improve user experience. After using the Soluto software, most will wonder how they ever got by without it. For taking on a frustration that most of us have felt but haven't had a way of dealing with, Soluto is Character Approved.
