Any recommended replacements for Soluto?

For a couple of years I have been using Soluto to speed up computers when needed. It has been an absolutely wonderful tool for that. They have been bought out and are now doing something completely different.

Soluto was great for controlling which programs booted, and notified me of any changes.

What other solutions are there out there?

autoruns by MS itself lets you see all items that start, but it won't notify you.

You can use Autoruns from Sysinternals/Microsoft to control what starts with Windows, and EventSentry Light to get notifications for almost anything that happens inside Windows.

Thanks to both. I tried autoruns and that does some of what I wanted...Soluto would also make recommendations and give me the ability to control startup items remotely without accessing the computer. I found Eventsentry Light a bit confusing.

I'm flummoxed that Soluto discontinued their service. Any other ideas out there?

Autoruns has a command line version, it's part of the download. Combined with psexec, you can query remote systems.
