Lenovo Ideapad 510s 14IKB

Operating System: Windows 10 Home

I just wanna know what is " lenovo modern im controller" it's plugins and related files to it. Is it harmful virus or spyware?

It's using up pretty much memory. Can I just delete it or uninstall? Or just 'end task' from task manager ?

It is the Companion app. It has a known issue of eating memory.

Current version is 3.65.2.0.

Uninstall it until  a newer version is available.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad 510s 14IKB

My version is 3.44.0.0

If I uninstall the "app" how will I be able to know when its newer version arrives. Is it necessary to install this app at all? Does this app collect or send any data from my PC? 

*Side Note: I am new to Windows 10. ( Perviously I used Windows 7)

PS: How do I use or download the apps from windows store? Its never getting downloaded and showing some problems.

**note: I am using Ethernet LAN connection (needs proxy)

Thanks.

If you go to the windows store, and let the screen sit a minute or so, a download button will show to the left of the search box.  It will offer updates for all installed apps needing updates. 

 

You can turn off usage stats in the Companion settings option.
