I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have some problems with the Lenovo software. Lenovo Account Portal does not launch Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Also, Lenovo Solution Center is missing from the Start Menu. The second problem is that some tiles are blank in Start Menu. Seemingly it's the apps that aren't Metro. I'm not sure when the problem started, but I think it was like that since I got the PC. If I right click the apps, the only option will be "Pin to Start", and with some apps: Share and Rate. Here's a picture of the problem:I did already try:Restarting the PC.Doing scannow, DISM, and scannow again.Fixing Registry errors with CCleaner.Updating BIOS and drivers. What can I do to fix the problem?

Hi,I've just got my Lenovo V310-15 laptop and installed Windows 10 on it. From product support page I downloaded and installed Lenovo Utility, and there is nothing more. So, after installing it nothing happened. Only when i trigger CapsLk or Num Lock an information on screen appears. But, I want to have an ability to other options such as energy managment and allowing battery charging only to 80% for example.I know that this model is new and maybe not popular, but please add these programs and features like for other devices.Greetings

So First off, I am sure most of you who are looking at this will think it is an easy fix, and trust me I wish it was. I have spent the entire day before this post searching for common fixes to issues, with no luck.

First off, here is the scenario:

I went go get on my PC that has been running flawless since December 2010, and the first thing I notice is it came back from sleep or idle, whatever you want to call it. This seems to happen now and then and I believe it happens because windows installed an update over the night (Wednesday 2/27/13). Normally this is no big deal, I go about my way and all is fine.

So I noticed that some open files I was working on in excel have duplicates, one set is read only, one is not. I closed all that down and we were all set. The other big thing is the Aero feature was dead. So I went online and hit ALL the usual fixes, running the diagnostic, downloading the specific MS diagnostic tool, resetting the service multiple times, restarts, even some registry updates I found. NOTHING worked. The interesting thing is the only part of aero that is not working, is the glass feature, and the peek feature. All the mouse icons and other attributes seem to be working.

I have an Nvidia GTX 460 card, so I updated to the most current form of the drivers, nothing. I delete the drivers and install the original CD drivers, nothing. I then delete the driver and try to use driver sweep to remove them. This is when I notice that I can not boot into safe mod... Read more

What is happening with Lenovo System Update? We are getting an error that the package catalog is being updated? We have several models here and its happening on all of them. I can't find anything relating to this update on any Lenovo site, and the response I got from calling support was "Sorry." They were also not able to tell me when they think this will be fixed. EDIT: Spelling.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

My AMD Catalyst Software Suite has a Software Update on my Laptop. The problem is, every time I try to install it, it says everything installed. I then head back to see what version I have, and its the same one as before. If I click on the software to install it again, it says the same thing and doesn't install the latest software.

Confused!

It probably detected, that there is a new version, but since it can not be installed on your system, it skips it.
Your GPU is not supported anymore, so you can just disable update checking for AMD drivers.

iTunes 12.5x will not install on my Windows 10 desktop. I download the latest iTunes version and then get the error below, multiple times.

I read up on the error. The recommendation to cure the problem was to go to Programs, Uninstall, but instead Repair the Apple Software Update application.

I tried that, right-clicked to Repair ASU, but then I got a message saying that ASU was already uninstalled. I cannot now find Apple Software Update application to re-install it. I've looked all over the Apple and Windows download systems. No luck.

Can anyone help me with this problem ?

I want to do a clean install and replace the pre-installed Vista with Windows 7. I see that the Lenovo G550 download page has drivers for Windows 7, but where is the pre-installed software, like Veriface, camera software, and all other pre-installed Lenovo software? I looked at all OS options for the G550 on the download page, and NONE of them had the G550 laptop software, all they had for each OS option was only  the drivers. I understand that I can make a recovery DVD, but as I understand  it, it will return the system to the factory fresh state (all pre-installed programs installed, but also with the factory installed VISTA  - yuck!). I didn't see any option to only re-install the  Lenovo software without also re-installing the OS. When I look at the download pages for other Lenovo  laptops, I see that they have drivers AND SOFTWARE, but the G550 has no software except for the drivers. Since the G550 came with no software disks, and there doesn't seem to be any of the software online, how exactly does one do a clean installation of an operating system, and then re-install the Lenovo software, on a G550? I was able to find downloads of programs like Veriface on the Lenovo site for different laptop models, but unfortunately those were much older software versions, and for a different Operating system. Why can't Lenovo post all of the software online? If they aren't going to provide the software on DVD... Read more

A:Where is the software for the Lenovo G550???

A week later and still no software? Come on Lenovo, I looked through the forums and saw that I wasn't the only one looking for the downloads. The only thing I can find is older Veriface software for G530s, and that is 32 bit ( I need 64 bit) G550 owners need the software downloads for Veriface, EasyCapture and whatever else you installed on the machine. Why did Lenovo not provide reinstallation DVDs with the computer? Since this wasn't done, then you should at least provide us with download links for this software. There are a lot of folks waiting to upgrade to Windows 7, and they would like to be able to use their built-in webcams after a clean install of Windows 7. DELL provides both reinstallation Disks AND  download links; why is Lenovo incapable of doing the same?

In preparation for a possible re-install of Windows 10 (64-bit) on a Lenovo Stick 300, I attempted to download the SystemInterfaceFoundation and the LenovoSolutionCenter (32- & 64-bit).  I wanted to do this on my normal, non-Lenovo desktop, where I would save the files for later use. 1. Clicking on the direct download links gave a server error. 2. So, I attempted to mark the three files for download, and download that way.  That required the installation of the LenovoSystemBridge.  Why?  It wanted to gather all the information about my download system, which is NOT the Lenovo system of interest.  I installed it anyway. 3. OK, the download of the SystemInterfaceFoundation went fine, and then the downloads hung.  So, I "uninstalled" the LenovoSystemBridge, but that left a bunch of files in C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Apps.  That's not what "uninstall" means to most people. 4. OK, thinking that this had to be done on the Lenovo stick, I tried the same thing (including the LenovoSystemBridge install).  Same result, except called "network error".

A:Why is it so hard to download Lenovo software???

I just got my Stick 300 last week. Solution Center prompted me to download and update to the newest version last week the first time I clicked it. Installed no problem. Today I click from the front page of the support page for it to automatically determine my system and it prompted me to download Service Bridge and that installed no problem. Then I just clicked the icon for Companion that was on the PC, which is System Interface Foundation, and that prompted me to download and install the newest version. That installed OK , BUT it is freezing when I use it. It will run the Optimize, but when I click some of the stuff on the left , it freezes so I just X out of it.  The only thing that I downloaded right from the download page was the BIOS update, and that downloaded with no problem. The other three things, as described above, I did not download from the download, page, I did them when I was prompted to.

Hello, I'm running a Lenovo Thinkpad SL 410, and am curious as to if it's ok to get rid of some bloat ware.I'm using PC Decrapifier to get rid of things like Norton, which constantly send pop-ups on start up taking up memory and bogging down the system all together.I don't use any of the features such as thinkvantage toolbox, mainly because it takes 5 minutes to load up and then another 5 minutes to load each page, or even scroll down certain logs. This was happening the day I booted the system so it is not a malware concern.Before I go ahead and uninstall random things, I like to do some research and see if I need it and if it will ruin my laptop with out it. So far I haven't seemed to be able to find anything on getting rid of certain built in software like Lenovo's Thinkvantage Toolbox.A couple others I've been curious about are anything with Lenovo as the Publisher. I'm sure some of them are beneficial to the architecture of the laptop, but is there any I can go without?Looking forward to a response. Thanks, Devin.

A:Is it safe to uninstall and delete certain Lenovo software?

Hi Devin,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Think Vantage is a software library preinstalled on a Lenovo ThinkPad computers. It is intended to maximize the business user's experience through the use of easy-to-access utilities that take advantage of the ThinkPad's hardware features.
 
You can use your ThinkPad without any Think vantage software if you want to. Since Think vantage is a lot of things I?m not sure what software you found that slows down the computer. You can uninstall the software?s that are not required from control panel. I would recommend you to uninstall only if you find it doesn?t serve any of your purposes.
 
Refer the knowledgebase created by Mark_Lenovo to understand more about Think vantage toolbox.
 
Hope this provided enough clarity for your query!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hello all,
Just a notice to all users, not to use Lenovo Rescue & Recovery. Everything goes well, until the restore : I have one SSD for system and one micro sata for data. The system drive had two partitions (created by Lenovo at the origin, a system (C) partition and a Lenovo recovery partition). When I tried to restore a previous version of the system drive that I backuped with Lenovo R&R, it restored the system on C: and restored the recovery partition... on D:, erasing all my data ! In addition, the MBR was missing. And cherry on the cake, I could not use the beckup a second time when I tried.
I was particularly disappointed because as the backup went so smoothly, I did not do a data backup before restore, my previous backup being three days old, so I lost three days of work.
I had previous bad experience with Windows backup & restore, the software could not find the resotre, but at least it did not erase data. Now I am trying acronis, did not try restoring yet.
I reinstalled my laptop with an orginal Windows porfessional CD, I could use the licence number on the laptop sticker, I'll never use a Lenovo software again. And i'll never restore without backing up or disconnecting my dta drive.

I have a Lenovo Edge 15 on Windows 8.1

The new laptop came with preinstalled software and drivers. However I prefer to do a fresh Windows 8.1 install without the Lenvo drivers/software. After doing fresh install, I prefer to go to Lenvo's support site and download and install the drivers manually.


How can I do a fresh install? The OneKey feature will for sure will install the drivers/software from the hidden partition which I don't want. I know Windows 8 has the reset feature, however, I am unsure if it will also install the drivers/software from Lenovo.

Also, I want to ensure that the reset feature won't damage/delete the hidden OneKey partiation.

Is it possible to do a fresh install without doing it from USB?

A:Fresh Windows 8 Install without Lenovo Drivers/Software

the onekey (recovery) partition contains the factory out of the box image.. And yes doing a Reset with onekey will rewrite all the factory software, drivers and bloatware..

If you wish to keep the factory setup for future use - Create a Recovery Drive - first..

Then you can do a clean install of windows 8.1 from USB or DVD and install the MFG's Drivers..

You can download 8.1 here > Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

Last night when I came back to my desk, I found someone remotely controlling my computer.   They had a browser open, were trying to access someone's data at a credit reporting site.  When I started controlling the mouse, the perpertrator tried to shut down the computer (they shut down menu popped up), but I prevented it.  It then looked like s/he disconnected.  I saw a brief flash of a window, maybe something saying "Personal Network" (?).
 
After that, I tried to track down what was going on.  I ran netstat and saw some suspicious connections to IP addresses in listed under "Chinanet" (from a Whois look up).  The connections were to a process running under services.exe.
 
I've been running Comodo Firewall for quite a while so I thought that I was protected.  I did download a BitTorrent app a few months ago, and after I installed it, I got the impression that it  was loaded with something bad (but I have no evidence that it was), so  I removed it right away after installing it.
 
Today, I ran MalwareBytes, it found and removed a bunch of files it categorized as "PUP.Optional.Conduit".   (Based on the online descriptions of that, it doesn't seem like the source of the remote control app.)  After that, I ran HijackThis!, and saw a remnant of the BitTorrent app running as a service, which I then removed it using HijackThis.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Lenovo Group Ltd, the world's largest PC maker, had pre-installed a virus-like software on laptops that makes the devices more vulnerable to hacking, cybersecurity experts said on Thursday.
Users reported as early as last June that a program called Superfish pre-installed by Lenovo on consumer laptops was 'adware', or software that automatically displays adverts.
Robert Graham, CEO of U.S.-based security research firm Errata Security, said Superfish was malicious software that hijacks and throws open encrypted connections, paving the way for hackers to also commandeer these connections and eavesdrop, in what is known as a man-in-the-middle attack.

But i cannot get the utility software to work, it had some nice functions that i really liked. I have tried installing it and reinstalling it and double checked if it's the right one. I tried running the .exe from the directory and task manager says it's running but there is no task tray icon or any way of interacting with it? Please help

Yesterday when I shutdown my laptop I got the notification that updates were in progress and not to shut down. After completed I attempted to startup and laptop will not complete startup. After powering up I get past the password log in and the task bar and icons appear. Only a third of the icons are in color the rest are b/w. When I hold the cursor over the task bar I get the working circle and when holding over the icons I get the arrow. After 30 seconds or so the screen flashes on and off as if the laptop is stuck at a point in the process. It never fully starts and flashes until I hit cont/alt/del and power off. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Hi there is a known issue with some of the Tuesday 12th August updates, I am finding references to this all over the net.
Do you have the rescue disk or other bootable media from when you got the computer?
If so have a look at the "Known Issue 3" on this page, it describes how to get out of the problem, here is the Microsoft page :-
