Getting started with the new Soluto – Part 1

We’ve recently released a new web service where you can help other people with their PCs. The best way to start is to add your own PC and experience for yourself all the great things you’ll be able to do for others. It’s a very simple process and who knows, you may even learn something new about your PC.

So let’s get started :)

Step 1 – Register.

Step2 – Add your own PC.

Once you’re in your Soluto account you can add your own PC right away. Just give it a name, press the big green download button and run the installer.

After you run the installer, head back to your account homepage (just return to http://www.soluto.com). You’ll see an icon of your PC has appeared. Click on it and get ready for action.

The page that opens when you click on the PC icon contains tons of info to help you know what’s going on with the PC. And what’s really nice about this page is that you can take lots of different actions to improve stuff.

Let’s explore the features:

Frustrations – In this section you will see info about non-responsive apps and crashes that have recently occurred on the PC.

Background Apps – This is where you can see what apps are running in the background, and which of them are safe to remove – lightening the PC’s workload and speeding up the boot.

Internet – This section lets you choose a default browser (and if you don’t see the browser you want, you can install it from here), set the homepage and change the search engine. You can also disable toolbars and add-ons for a better internet experience.

Protection – Here you can turn on the PC’s firewall, install an antivirus and push Windows updates to make sure the PC is protected and up-to-date.

And that’s just skimming the surface.  Go and try it out to really see all the things you can do. Once you experience it for yourself, you’ll want to add other people and help them out with their PCs :)

Enjoy!
