The Lenovo Thinkvantage Toolbox recently quit working on my T420 Win 7 laptop. It would not open and when it did, it would not show any information. After 2 weeks of this, I decided to just delete the program and re-download it from Lenovo's website.
I went to the download drivers and software but I can't find the Thinkvantage Toolbox download. I called Tech support and they were less than helpful. I was on the drivers and software screen and asked him if he could tell me which one I needed to download. He told me just do do a system restore all the way back to when I bought my machine. I explained to him I did not want to go that far if I was going to loose all my information and asked him what would happen if I do a system restore. He then told me to "nevermind" and that the Thinkvantage Toolbox was no longer supported and was not available any more. I asked him if there was another program that took the place of the Toolbox and he told me there was not, and unless I restored my system I was not going to have the program any more.
Can anyone help me find this program again? Thanks in advance for the help.

Toolbox went end of life. It's being replaced with this .

Here's a thread on it.
Everything happened at once. Toolbox went end of life and the replacement went online. I don't think it was quite ready yet. They are still working on it.
If you are using the preloaded OS, Toolbox should still be on your computer. In C: maybe in SWTools or the drivers folder. If it is still on your computer, it can still be used. There's just no support for it though.

I finally installed the new Lenovo Solution Center today, and now I find that the Access connections does not work now for my wireless connections. When I click the Access Connections program it does the same thing, a black box opens up, but never loads the program, and I have to Ctrl, alt Delete and tell it to stop the non-responding program. Don't know if this is related to the other Toolbox failure or not. Any ideas on this failure now?

I don't use either one so I'd be guessing here, but I'd say to uninstall LSC and see if AC works again. If it does, maybe AC needs updated.
It looks to me like a conflict between the two.
