Dear Sir or Madam,
I have a Lenovo 4446-25U G530 running XP Pro and equipped with WiFi Link 5100 AGN with driver 126.96.36.199 11-17-2008.
When I attempt to update my system using the Lenovo Care, I get a message to update my WiFi driver to 188.8.131.52. During installation I get an error message: c:\PROGRA~1\Lenovo\SYSTEM~1\session\52wi07ww\Vista\Docs\Icons\Thumbs.db Access is denied. At this point installation is halted at 80%. When I click OK on the "Access is denied" window, the installation continues until I get a messge from System Update stating "1 Package was successfully downloaded and installed"
When I view installation history, the updated driver (184.108.40.206) is listed as having been installed, however when I check for system updates using Lenovo Care, it continues to show the WiFi Link 5100 driver as a pending update. Apparently the installation is not sucessful.
Is this a Vista only update that I should ignore?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I deleted the file and ran lenovo care with admin privileges. This time I did not get the error message. The update seemed to run as it should, however I have the same problem as before. Lenovo care system update still shows I need to update my WiFi driver to 220.127.116.11 while my installation history shows it was updated today.
How do I check my system status to see which portion of Lenovo care is in error?

OK, so now I've confirmed the update did not work--I am still running 18.104.22.168 driver dated 11-17-2008. Is it not possible to update the driver, or is it just not worth the trouble?
