Preferred Solution: Lenovo LSE Windows Disabler Tool

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 10 brought us Cortana. Edge. A brand new Start Menu. Oh, and a host of new and extended ways for Microsoft to capture data on your activities.

Fortunately 2015 has also seen the growth of a whole new market for programs to turn these technologies off again, and Win10 Spy Disabler is the latest example.
The program is a sub-2MB download which unzips 32 and 64-bit executables. Just double-click the appropriate version for you, or run the 32-bit if you?re unsure.

Launch the program and it displays a list of 20+ "privacy tweaks" you can apply. Some are clearly Windows 10-specific ("Always Send DoNotTrack on IE/ Edge", "Prevent Wifi Sense from connecting to open hotspots"), others are a little more ambiguous ("Disable Telemetry & Data Collection"), and a few are standard privacy tweaks for any recent Windows version ("Disable Recent Files, Folders, Docs, Progs").

If you?re looking for fine control then this probably isn?t the program for you. "Disable Cortana, WebSearch, BingSearch" is a single option, for instance: if you only want to disable one of those, you?re out of luck.

Still, Win10 Spy Disabler does a good job of keeping you safe, by offering to create a system restore point before applying any tweaks.

There?s also a bonus "System Tweaks" tab which gives easy access to more general Windows settings: "Show Hidden and System Files", "Disable Windows Remote Assist... Read more

I wrote a quick batch script to disable some of the Windows 10 telemetry.

It's interactive, safe*, and easy to use.


Download Link: Script


I'm working on a more comprehensive application to control the telemetry in windows 10. A true C++ application, but there's a lot more testing to be done before I can share that.



* Safe, but some options are permanent.

@Kari may be able to recommend an approach. He knows more about dropping interesting third-party stuff into image customization and Sysprep than anybody else I know. Maybe he'll chime in, once he gets his misbehaving laptop running again...?

My last Spybot check found two entrees: Windows Security Center Anti Virus Disabler & Windows Security Center Firewall Disabler. I removed them. I run Spybot weekly. In between scans I noticed my Firewall & Virus protection were disabled at start-up. At first I was able to click on & enable them but then twice within 5 days I got the blue screen stop error (0X0000008E) right at the time these two items were loading. I hope by removing these items with Spybot Search & Destroy I have solved the bigger problem of the stop error. Has anyone else had this situation?

Question: Add-on disabler?

I get that pop-up ever so often. Looks legit, but thought I'd ask before messing with it.Thanks in advance.

Answer:Add-on disabler?

You're using Internet Explorer 9, right? (You didn't say). This is the "Speed up browsing by disabling add-ons Message" that annoys many people. Depending on which version of Windows you have. You cannot remove it from Internet Explorer's menus or options, but you can do these things:You can increase the average page load time delay limitWhen the popup notification message appears again, click on "Choose add-ons" button. It'll open a new window. Now look at the bottom of the window. You'll see "Tell me when the delay caused by add-ons exceeds:" option. It would be set to 0.20 seconds by default. Click on the drop-down box and set it to 10.00 seconds. Click on "Done" button and it should disable the popup notification message, or at least make it not appear very often.You can disable it by using Group Policy Editor available in some versions of Windowshttp://www.onlinecomputertips.com/windows/ie9_addon_message.htmlor by editing the Registry (This is ONLY for people that know what they are doing!)Under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies - add a new sub-key Ext - create a DWORD value named DisableAddonLoadTimePerformanceNotifica tions - value 1 - no popups, value 0 - popups enabled.

Question: Antivirus Disabler

I am running Norton Antivirus with automatic updates enabled, but today I got a popup from the program telling me the virus definitions were out of date. I tried updating them manually but the same popup came up so I figured there was a problem. I ran spybot and found this result:

Windows Security Center.AntiVirusDisableNotify: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SecurityCenter\AntiVirusDisableNotify=dword:0

I tried fixing the problem through spybot but it just shows up again upon reboot. Here is my HJT log. Not sure if this is something I should be worried about or not, as I don't seem to have any other issues. Any help is appreciated.

Hey there - some web sites have right click disabled for whatever reason. It boggles my mind. Anyways - I remember years back seeing some sort of work around that disabled this.

Anybody know how to do this in Firefox? I think when I saw it it was before Firefox had even come out.

Similarly - any way to bypass when pages have "view source" disabled?
 

Answer:How to disable right click disabler in Firefox?

There's always View - Page Source in Firefox and View - Source in IE... never found a webpage that could stop either of those methods.

You can always load up a word processor and do File - Open and copy/paste the URL directly; Word and most other word processors will load the webpage directly as though it was just another HTML document as required.

Hi. I was carefully following the Major Geeks malware removal guide for Vista O/S, and while running MG Tools, Kaspersky popped-up with a severe warning that the file "c:\MGtools\temp\xlmpolexp.txt" had a trojan "Trojan.WinREG.Disabler.h". The initial Kaspersky warning asked if I wanted to delete this, and I chose yes.

Then it came back with another critical warning stating, that "..file contains Trojan program and cannot be deleted: object is not found". It lists the same location as given above in a MGtools temp file. The only option it offers now is to "Skip: Attempt of access to the file will be blocked. File will not be changed or deleted." I have checked the C:\MGtools\temp folder and it's empty. All hidden files are exposed, per your earlier instructions in the guide.

I haven't chosen that option yet as I want to be sure that 1)the Kaspersky warning is not a false positive (I can't find anything useful on this when I search on the internet), and 2) if this is the real thing, I'd like to leave it open to being removed from my system.

I know MGtools would not habor any trojans. I know you guys are careful and I've never had a problem with anything from your site in the past. (BTW, thanks for the volumes of info and software you share. It's helped me tremendously in the past, and I trust your site!)

I deleted it but I keep getting a pop-up to sell me a spyware removal application. When I deleted that, my browser crashes. When I try to use the internet again I get the standard warning that an error has occurred, would I like to send a copy to Microsoft, etc... This of course closes my browser again.

Hi,
Install windows 10 and confirm activation as suggested in forums. Downloaded Windows Media Creation Tool to create fresh reinstall. Ran it to create 64 bit ISO. Now using the ISO to reinstall windows 10. At 30% restore, it failed. I tried various recovery. Even did chkdsk on drive c with /r and also with /f. Same problem again - failure at about 30% restore.

Reading in forums, I discover Refresh Windows Tool(exe). Downloaded and ran it (tool) to download Windows 10.
What I dislike. No Pause or ability to use a download manager. When this download of about 3gb is done, where is it saved? How to use? Yea, automatic for I still have prior install files (programs, data folders,etc) which means nothing was done. Did restart hoping for a fresh reinstall - no changes. Thus I am posting in this forum with paragraph 1 (media tool) and Refresh tool (paragraph 2).

Went into BIOS startup and told it to use DVD (boot order priority), but instead window normal login was done and given. Thus, use window recovery within to execute the ISO.

Answer:Fresh ReInstall Windows 10 (Media Creation Tool & Refresh Window Tool)

If you want to do a fresh reinstall (clean install) then you need to make a bootable USB flash drive or a physical DVD from the image contained in the ISO file and actually boot the computer from it.

Yea, automatic for I still have prior install files (programs, data folders,etc) which means nothing was done. Did restart hoping for a fresh reinstall - no changes. Thus I am posting in this forum with paragraph 1 (media tool) and Refresh tool (paragraph 2).

Went into BIOS startup and told it to use DVD (boot order priority), but instead window normal login was done and given. Thus, use window recovery within to execute the ISO.

Honestly, I waste more productive time every day struggling to UNDO all of the endless "Auto Formatting" mandates that Microsoft insists on forcing down our throats [whether we want them or not], that I'm starting to loose it. Is there any clearly defined way to PERMANENTLY turn them OFF .... ?

Even when I go into the WORD OPTIONS --> PROOFING and turn each and every one of those Auto Formatting annoyances off... they just wont' PERMANENTLY go away ! Even on the document that I have open ?? Whether it's changing the spacing between paragraphs / or font style / or margin setting.. you name it... they just won't go away. And then I'm forced to spend endless time trying to get the document the way "I" want it to look... and as soon as I do that... some other part of the document gets it's formatting screwed up.

What am I doing wrong ? Is it something with a template or other file or what ? This AutoFormatting is driving me crazy !

Hi, I ran the diagnostic tool and it came up with multiple errors (see below) that included "problems" with the "C" Drive which I realize is NOT a good sign and would appreciate help (interpretation) of the report. Is my system in BIG trouble, that is do I need to replace it or are the errors nothing to worry about?

How can I get the Lenovo update tool to work properly?  I've asked it to scan my system a number of times and says everything is up to date but then I find the updated drives (that I don't have) on the Lenovo site or on some other third party site. Is there some way to actually make this work or does someone have a suggestion for a program that actually does as advertised?

Answer:Lenovo Y50-70 Update Tool

Dear Turfy
 
Welcome in lenovo community
 
Kindly be informed that the updated driver on lenovo support page are released for the newest manufactured machine even if it's the same model, As long the application didn't ask you to install any updated softwares so nothing required to be installed
 
Let me know
 
Thanks

it does not update on both rings fast and slow. the error code is (0x80073712). ive reseted the device 5 times but still no fix, ive tried soft reset many times but no fix, tried the update continuously but still no update. so I tried to roll back but it says that the 920 is not supported and package is not available. I tried to roll back using both the windows device recovery tool (windows phone recovery tool) and nokia software for retail updater. please help.

Answer:is the nokia lumia 920 supported in the windows device recovery tool (windows phone recovery tool)?

Yes the 920 should work with both tools.
Has the phone undergone any flashing? (to a different ROM, like AT&T US > unbranded French?)

Hello and welcome,
 
I don't know of such a tool.  I can tell you that my T400 ran WIndows 7 Pro 64 quite nicely.  ThinkVantage System Update can be installed and used to pull down the appropriate Lenovo drivers and apps.
 
If you take a look at the download page(s) for your machine you'll see a full complement of drivers for Win 7:

Hi there, I've seen many forum topics relating to the pressure sensitivity on Paint Tool Sai when using a Lenovo Helix.I too am struggling with the issue. It's not only the pressure sensitivity that doesn't seem to work, but pinch to zoom and other tablet functions don't seem to either - I'm making the assumption that Paint Tool can't recognise that I'm using a tablet. I've tried every piece of advice on here and Google - although most advice seems to be regarding Wacom sensitivity which doesn't really help me. I've tried changing the settings within Paint Tool and also downloading the most recent Wintab drivers as well, restarting the laptop without the stylo in the hole etc. But nothing seems to work. I have emailed Systemax to see if they can help, but I'm really not sure what there support will be like. I was just wondering whether anyone knows anything else I can try?

Hi everyone,

I've done the automatic removal with the Lenovo tool as well as the manual uninstall and I keep getting "Found but not removed - Superfish application" all other messages are "Found and removed". I've rebooted and Superfish reinitiated. I ran the tool again and got the same messages. I did a manual search for the Superfish certificate and found something under Programfiles(x86)\Lenovo\VisualDiscovery. On trying to remove it I got the message "The SuperfishCert.dll file cannot be deleted because it is open in VisualDiscovery". I can't delete the "VisualDiscovery.exe" file either. Anybody have any ideas on what to do now to get rid of this piece of trash?

Hello, I hope you can help. I have a lenovo sl510 notebook. Have this notebook a integrated screenshot tool?

I've been able to capture screenshots using the standard Fn-PrtSc key combination, which captures the entire Windows screen to the Clipboard.

So I tried to download a copy of drivers for my Yoga 920, then I noticed the link for recovery media. I tried to download it using the steps and the tool. The download went fine and I proceeded to the Select USB tab. It detected my drive and started the process, then the usb suddenly got disconnected and the process failed. I'm using the laptop on a table and I did not touch the usb during operation. I tried to do the process again, but I get an error as seen in the screenshot. Any help? Tips? to get the thing working again Alternatively, if I don't trust the reset option on the laptop, can I just download a Windows 10 ISO with microsoft's tool and use that to reformat the laptop without inputting a key? Will my device still be activated after the process?

Answer:Failed to Create Recovery Media with Lenovo tool

Hi svrndmngjr,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The Yoga 920 does not have a special factory recovery partition like One Key Recovery like on other machine.
It uses the same Windows reset features just like all other Windows 10 machines as shown in chapter 3 of the users manual here. 
 
A clean installation using a downloaded ISO (same version of Windows that the machine came with) would automatically activate it. OEM product keys are embedded on the systemboard (Win8 and Win10) unlike having a COA sticker that Windows XP and Win7 does. 
 
You can follow the guideline here. With the drivers and applications, if you have additional copies from the D drive then just copy it or download it from here (support website). Other applications are in the Microsoft Store just type Lenovo in the search to download if you need it.
 
Your device would still be activated after the process.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Answer:500-15ISK - No Lenovo Tool for drivers check for Ideapad like Thinkpad?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Based on your previous forum posting I am assuming that you are using Windows 7.  Unfortunately for Windows 7,  the Ideapad product line has no utility for doing updates like the ThinkVantage System Update Tool for Thinkpads.  With Windows 10, Lenovo introduced an application called Companion 3 which can be used to scan your computer for updates like drivers.

Hi, I recently observed slowness and some weird behavior on my Lenovo G580. When I ran the full hardware scan, the SMART SST and DST tests showed warnings. But when I ran the same tests with Seagate tool, they pass.1. I am not sure what to rely on. But I am pretty sure something is not working correctly. How to Pin-point the problem?2. WHD01V000-HL9V2E: This is the warning code I got. Any idea what it means? I couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks

Answer:G580 SMART SST and DST tests warnings in Lenovo Solution Center but pass in Seagate Tool?

Hi rachitg89 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The error code detected as WHD01V000-HL9V2E is interpreted as :
W=Windows, HD=Harddrive, 01V=test used ,000 =result (may be invalid/ warning , not available) -XXXXXX
 
 
[Image removed]
 
You may also call in tech support for their recommendation , they have tools that would interpret and provide suggestion about the error code. 
 
It may be a bad sector that may be fixed with chkdsk /r due to data corruption or a physical bad sector .
Bottom line is that S.M.A.R.T. test are early indicators created to warn user that the harddrive may fail in the near future and inform its user to back up their files asap and Lenovo Solution Center is sensitive to these readings.
 
Warning is simply saying that it's not working 100%. 
Since you already noticed slowness in performance , best that you back up files immediately and run chkdsk  and sfc /scannow.  You may also used a different diagnostic tool or check it on the command line wmic .
 
Chkdsk can mark bad sectors as bad so that it won,t be used anymore and jumps to the next viable sector.
Sfc /scannow will check integrity of your windows file and correct them if it can. 
Likewise I definitely would suggest to create yourself a recovery image as soon as done with the back up. 
 
Hope this helped you.
Update us how it goes.

A large number of PC users today use USB drives to install Windows operating system thanks to dirt cheap USB drives and plenty of free tools out there for creating bootable USB drives.

Back in Windows XP and Vista days, most users were not even aware of the fact that it?s possible to install Windows operating system from USB drives. The method became popular with the release of Windows 7 Beta in January 2009. Plenty of free utilities have been released since than with variety of options to help users create bootable USB to install Windows operating system from USB drive.

After the release of Windows 7 RTM in October 2009, Microsoft also released its official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to help users easily make USB drives bootable and then install Windows from the bootable USB drive.
Windows USB/DVD Download Tool
The official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool is one of the largely used tools to prepare bootable USB of Windows operating system. Although it has not received any major updates since its initial release, Microsoft has quietly renamed the program page as Windows USB/DVD Download Tool in the last few months.

As you likely know, a couple of months ago, the official page of Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool used the title Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool but the title of the page is now Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. The content on the page even refers to the software as Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. Going by last edited information on CodePlex, it looks like... Read more

Microsoft plans to release the latest version of Windows 10 Technical Preview build (Windows 10 Consumer Preview build) in the third or fourth week of January, 2015. The Consumer Preview build will include many new features and improvements in addition to the features that we have already seen in the officially released Windows 10 9841 and 9879 builds.

When Microsoft releases the consumer preview (Windows 10 Technical Preview for consumers) build of Windows 10 in January, existing users who are running the official Windows 10 9879 build will be able to upgrade to the latest build by retaining data and installed programs.

For users who would like to perform a clean install of the latest build Microsoft will offer ISO image of the same. Users can then install Windows 10 on a virtual machine or prepare the bootable USB to install Windows 10 from USB on PC.

For those Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users who would like to upgrade their existing installation to the latest Windows 10 Preview build in January, Microsoft has released a free tool which will automatically serve you the latest Windows 10 Preview build via Windows Update in early 2015. That is, in simple words, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users can upgrade to Windows 10 Preview via Windows Update when the official preview is made available in early 2015.

To get Windows 10 Preview via Windows Updates in early 2015, you just need to download and run a small tool named Prepare Windows 8.1/7 for Windows Technical Preview build. ... Read more

Do you have a portable CD drive?  Can you try downloading this and see if it will boot the CD? http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?&DocID=DS029188 I have a feeling that since you get nothing at all on the screen that a bad flash occured.  Maybe someone on here can help you force an update, but I would keep calling back to Lenovo and asking for an exceotion since you are only 4 days out and it was their tool that caused the issue. Look through this topic if you have not already: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/X230-unable-to-enter-bios-set-up-need-help-PLE... Specifically Message 9 of 10

Hi there,

New to the forum and some challenge navigating topics, so please forgive if this has been covered.

I am trying to remove a virus titled Security Tool and any other problems from a XP system.

Following is a history of recent unsuccessful attempts
1. downloaded Malwarebytes, ran full scan, found three items, removed and rebooted. no appearance of Virus.

2. Next day, reappearance of virus

3. could not re-run Malwarebytes.

4. Renamed exe file to alternate on alternate computer with flash drive. Could not execute

5. downloaded again, and try to execute with random name from flash drive. Could not execute.

6. Cannot run, regedit; command.com; devmgmt.msc or cmd

7. separately downloaded dds; combofix and win32kdiag; "application cannot be executed." "notepad.exe is infected"
appreciate the support,
IrishO

Answer:Security Tool Virus (System Tool 2011)

Hello IrishO ,Let's disable the main file manually so you can run some tools. What I want you to look for is in Application Data (If using XP). There will be a folder, with a file in it of the same "name". This will appear random, but it has a pattern. Look for letters and numbers in this order: lower case, upper case, lower case, upper case, lower case, then 5 random numbers. For example:Folder -----> pEeHl02508\pEeHl02508.exe <-----file insideDelete the folder. Now, if you still have no access to the internet, download the following tool to a flash drive from a different computer, then put it on the infected one and run it.This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. IF YOU USE AVG IT MUST BE UNINSTALLED OR THIS WILL NOT RUN.1. Download this file - combofix.exe http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe 2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please.Note:Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.If you have trouble running it the first time, then rename ComboFix.exe to IrishO.exe and try again.Thanks,tea

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.

I've discovered the DirectShare capability that came installed on my Y560 IdeaPad that came with Windows 7. This application perfectly suits my needs since I still do certain work on my J115 (3000 series) tower system that runs Windows XP. The DirectShare app gives directions on how to install DirectShare on the other system but it does not make it clear whether or not WinXP systems are supported.  Anyone know?  If not is there a comparable freeware app that does this?  Thanks.

Ok here's the problem, I have a Lenovo Thinkcentre M91p desktop which I was preparing to sell, first thing I wanted to do was to erase contents of hard drive first by using Derik's Drive Nuker disc however the problem started when the PC starts it doesn't show the "Lenovo" logo splash screen with the F-12 option to access BIOS, I needed to access bios so I can reboot with the dban disc to erase the hard drive when that option was not available I opened up "msconfig" and made the mistake of changing the system configuration from "Normal start up" to " Selective Startup" with only the " Use original boot configuration" option checked because I thought that would show me the splash screen on start up but, that wasn't the case.  After I did that and restarted the PC everything was horrible, not only wasn't I able to see the splash screen but, also Windows wouldn't even load.  On start up the PC doesn't show the Lenovo logo splash window, it goes straight to windows but it only shows the pre-screen that pops up before the log-in screen, the one with the background image and the time on the lower left but, that's it....if I click on that window instead of showing me the log-in window where I'm supposed to enter my password it only shows a blue screen.  Now I can't access BIOS to fix anything nor get into Windows.  I need help please!

Here is my problem and here is the solution!!!My B540 Ideacentre would not pass the Lenovo splash screen. The only operational keys I had was F1 (BIOS) and F12 (BIOS options). F2 went to a light blue screen so no chance of even a one key recovery. Warrenty had expired four and a half months ago. I contacted Lenovo and after the guy told me to try F2 twice he said it was a HDD or other hardware failure and would cost around 200 maybe and also would take about two weeks.  AT THIS POINT YOU SHOULD NOT BE ANGRY FRUSTRATED OR PANIC. REMAIN CALM AND STOP AND THINK WHAT ACTUALLY WAS HAPPENING WHEN YOU LAST USED YOUR PC. For me I remembered Windows had auto downloaded 8.1 and was asking me to install. Also my keyboard had lost shift W T Y keys. This told me that it was not a hardware issue but a software issue and perhaps from this update. My HDD was not clicking or beeping and this PC has a 2TB Seagate Barracuda which has a good reputation. Luckly for me I also have a Seagate external expansion 2TB and a 500MB expansion which was the HDD from my old HP Touchsmart which I converted into an external hard drive by buying a HDD enclosure with cooling fan and all leads from eBay for 25 and this is where the solution is. If you can create an expansion drive so easily and access the HDD then why cant I do it with the HDD from my Ideacentre and of course you can. So first unplug your PC or laptop. Next remove the cover and unclip the HDD (which is easy with the B540.... Read more

Hi -

I just did a scan with a-squared Free & the report showed the following in 3 files associated with the L2MeFix Tool that I have on my Desktop:

Riskware.RiskTool.Win32.Processor.20

This is not the first time that I've scanned w/a2 since I got the L2MeFix Tool, but it's the first time that a2 has detected it.

On Emisoft's page for this "threat" (http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?Riskware.RiskTool.Win32.Processor.20), it says...

"Programs detected in the Riskware category are not directly malicious, but are often used in conjunction with Malware. This is why the a-squared scanner detects them too."

... then goes on to list 11 different types of programs that are "classified as Riskware". I'm guessing that the L2MeFix Tool probably falls under their category of "Other tools which are built to kill processes, hide windows or read system internals automatically".

I've seen this tool recommended in many different forums. Have you heard from anyone else that theirs was infected with this "threat"? Should I delete the whole thing or just leave it alone?

I downloaded the L2MeFix Tool from http://www.atribune.org, which I believe is the author's site.

Thanks for the advice,

Bethe

The only one available in the driver download page were Lenovo energy manger. The most importants for me that i need are lenovo onekey recovery app and lenovo updates. For onekey recovery I only need the app, not the files to restore the whole partition, because the recovery partition is intact, I did not format it.

"Lenovo Updates' (lenovo updates is the name of the app) The scond one im am more interested in.3. Lenovo Settings4.

However, after I installed Lenovo Energy Management Windows 7, it prompted me a message telling me to restart the PC. When I do so, the computer wouldn't able to boot again. A flash of a blue screen showed up after the Windows 7 logo done and the computer rebooted again; and it keep looping and looping. I am able to fix the blue screen by system restoring. However, the Lenovo Energy Management was still not installed. I'm just wondering, has anyone encountered this problem before, and what are the solutions of fixing this problem. Thank you.

Hello all,
I've had two partitions, one with XP and another one with Windows 7.
At boot runtime I could choose one of the two from the Window boot menu.
Later I installed a linux distro (debian) into another partition with the Grub support.
All worked fine. I could start linux or the Windows boot menu from Grub and so on.
All worked fine until today when while working on partions I accidentally deleted the linux one.

Now at start up it runs grub with an error (error 22) without showing the usual OS menu.

I tried also to recover the Windows 7 partition using the Windows 7 dvd installation.
The start up recovery tool said it fixed all things. But rebooting I'm still getting the same grub error.

How can I solve this problem and restore the Windows 7 boot menu?

Windows Service Pack Blocker Tool Kit temporarily prevents installation of Service Pack updates through Windows Update that is valid for 12 months following general availability of the service pack.
This toolkit contains three components. A Microsoft-signed executable ? creates a registry key on the computer on which it is run that blocks or unblocks the delivery of a Service Pack to that computer through Windows Update. A script ? does the same thing as the executable, but allows you to specify the remote machine name on which to block or unblock delivery of Service Packs. An ADM template ? allows administrators to import group policy settings to block or unblock delivery of Service Packs into their Group Policy environment. Administrators can then use Group Policy to centrally execute the action across systems in their environment. Download: Windows Service Pack Blocker Tool Kit

Hello carl424 & welcome to Vista Forums.
The Malicious Software Removal Tool detects and removes high-profile viruses including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom etc.
This is not a real-time tool but rather an application you run periodically.

Windows Defender detects and removes spyware. It is software that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software. It features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it's detected, minimizes interruptions, and helps you stay productive.

Hope that helps you.

Then, after maybe 5 rotations of the dots in the loading symbol, it freezes. It does not progress into starting up. At this point, I usually turn off my laptop by holding the power button. If I don't turn it off myself, it turns off automatically a few minutes later.  Every 2 or 3 times I turn on my computer, instead of the loading symbol, it turns into a "Preparing Automatic Repair" mode.
