Using a Lenovo PC or Laptop? You Need to Read This
Lenovo has urged its users to download the latest BIOS firmware update that disables a controversial "unwanted software" from its machines. Amid strong criticism after the revelation of "surreptitious" installation of certain programs in a large number of Lenovo PCs and laptops, the world's largest PC manufacturer has broken its silence on the matter.

They told me to remove some programs after I bought one from a box store a few months back. The thing is a month later I traded back for a different computer. The Lenovo didn't survive a 1 month warranty. I think overheating killed the hard drive. It was a y50-70 if I remember right. I will never by a lenovo anything ever again.

I really like my ASUS with the AMD A10. Was looking at Lenovo as the other possible buy,it had a removable battery,a big +, but it was an Intel processor.
I won,t say anything stupid in your thread for $1.98

Thanks for this information, looks like my laptop and PC are older models that don't fall in the vulnerable group. Appreciate the heads up though.
