I don't know how to unistall Battery Gauge old version, it's not on Programs and Features. There's a way I can unistall and install again all the Lenovo Utilities?? I don't want to unistall and install Windows 10 just for the battery gauge, seems lot of efforts for a widget.

You can always attempt to do a clean install of Windows 10 if you feel like it.
You're kidding, right? You're telling someone to wipe their hard drive because maybe reinstalling the entire system might fix Battery Gauge?
I'm having a related problem on X220 with Windows 10 x64. Lenovo System Update tries to update Battery Gauge, but installation always gets stuck forever at 91%.

do you manage to find any solutions to this problem? My first thought was that the app was bugged..
No, I never found a solution. I first saw the problem about 4 months ago. Lenovo System Update found an update for Battery Gauge and started the installer. Installation appears to proceed normally until it gets stuck at 91%. The Task Manager shows it as still active, but with no CPU or disk activity. I repeated the process several times, always with same result (stuck at 91%). I also manually downloaded Battery Gauge installer from the Lenovo support website and again the same result. I finally gave up and marked System Update to ignore this update, and forgot about it for months.
This week I thought I'd try again with the newest available Battery Gauge. Still the same result, stuck at 91% during installation.

Have either of you tried using a third party uninstaller like the free version of IOBits Uninstaller? If not, give it a try. If the Lenovo Battery Gauge appears on the list then do the uninstall. When that's done then let IOBit Uninstaller do a Power Scan for any remnants left behind. When exiting out the Power Scan just watch what you click as it will at times offer the Pro version on exit. Once uninstalled then try a fresh install of Lenovo Battery Gauge.
There are two versions of IOBits Uninstaller available. The first is the full installer of IOBits Uninstaller which can be found here....
The second is a portable version that can be put on a flash drive or in a folder on your hard drive without installing. Personally I like the portable versions. Here is a link.......

I've tried to do what you said but with IOBit and other third part unistaller "Lenovo Battery Gauge" does not appear on programs list.
There's not a way to remove manually this software then install it frm fresh?
