Please do NOT install this software at school as it would tend to slow down our network if many of you installed it.

I found a new software solution that I really like.   Have you ever noticed that over time your computer bootup gets slower and slower?    Well, go to and download their software.    It is very easy to install and very easy to use.    It basically analyzes all the files that run in startup and tells you which ones you can safely remove.     The really neat part is that it utilizes the social power of the “cloud” – the world of internet users.   It keeps track of what changes you make and uses that information to help determine what others should do when dealing with that same startup application.

I really like it.   (okay, now for the disclaimers.   I like it.  I am a software guy.   I pretty much know what I am doing.  SOOOO…  DON’T call me if you don’t know what you are doing, if this does not work for you, or if you don’t like it.  I can’t help you at home PHYSICALLY, but hopefully some of my posts here will help you).
