Lenovo Utility?

2017-03-29, 13:49 PM

Something went wrong when i did a clean install with Lenovo utility.   Do i need this?    Everything works fine,  Just thinking that if it regulates power or cpu or something like that maybe i should reinstall it.   If not i won't worry about it.  

So if someone can enlighten me as to what i'm missing i would appreciate it.

Thanks

Solved! See the solution

Kindly check Device Manager and see if there's any devices listed with a yellow traingle next to it. If there's none, then there's nothing to worry about. Lenovo Utility is probably a bloatware. I've tried Googling it, can't find anything relevant.

*bloatware = bad


Sorry for my bad English :D

Hi cbay1 , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Lenovo Utility was offered initially as preloaded application that includes power management option specially on older Windows version. Better explained by this discussion and futhermore here .

 

Others found it helpful but then again one key optimizer , lenovo setting and lenovo companion are newer apps to help user manage features of your laptop.  More about other lenovo applications and tools here.

 

You can review more on other application if you need it , else it is ok to make things simple and progress from there.

You can always start a post here on our community forums if you need / missing something important to you as such applications are optional tools.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

This is lenovo utility in windows 10 for Y700-17isk

The text is my own addition describing the actions which lead to the display of the corresponding on-screen notification

Note that the icons are white on a semi-transparent (greyish) box. In this case i have a used a black wallpaper

Hi cbay1

 

Greetings. 

 

In addition , Lenovo Setting preloaded desktop application main features  : Hotkey and OnScreenDisplay . 

One Key Optimizer replacing energy manager and Lenovo updates , features would include battery and power options, acceleration for apps , cleanup and updates of apps and drivers.

 

Indeed lesser start up applications , faster boot and response time.

Please don't hesitate to visit our community for your query and sharing of ideas at anytime. 

 

Regards

How to resolve this issue. It is not worth seeing in a new Lenovo core i7 8th gen ideapad. Please guide to resolve/provide a solution for the error path coming on the screen each and every time the system is started. We dont wish to see a LenovoUtility path error.
