The problem: You have too many things installed, and one of them is hogging the memory or the cpu or the web. You don't remember installing it, but maybe you did.

The solution: Before starting, but after the OS is up, any process AND service AS IT IS BEING started pops up a modal message box telling you the process name, and information from the PSW user community about its origin how it was installed, and what it is used for. A donateware version gives you also an expert analysis of all these programs.

Like process viewer, it can also show the processes already up, and explain them.

It downloads the latest information to its list at update hours. The expert edition can also be used to eliminate viruses. Since it will be open source, simple, and publicly protected against viruses, it will be very safe to use.

Windows version first, for the largest of PC user groups. MS to buy the idea (from HB, hereby the owner of this idea) and make an official and flawless version that will crash their next system during the demo.

       It's more of an insult if you refer to it as singular.
