Lenovo Y580 Creates "Lenovo" folder in start menu after every reboot.

2012-08-01, 23:52 PM

How do I stop the creation of the "Lenovo" folder being created in my start menu every time I restart my system? 

I have my start menu orginized how I want it, its not the chaos must users have. I delete the folder every time, and it just comes back. 

Not a major issue but sure is annoying! 

Any suggestions or help will be appreacated.

A Lenovo folder on your start menu?

 

Where exactly on the start menu  is it, and have you tried opening it?

 

İt may be an entry in the registry?

 

Have you scanned your system recently?

 

Please go here  http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/ and see if a scan will find malware.

 

Checkmark all appropriate boxes and disable your antivirus just before you start the scan

 

Please remember to turn it on again afterwards.

 

You can also do a shot(quick) scan by going to Start>type mrt.exe into the RUN box,enter

 

then choose Quick scan.

 

Let us know the results,if it is malware the malware forum would be the place to go to,

 

if not malware,then we can take it from there.

It is creating the folder in the users profile on the start menu root.  User vs all users on the start menu. 

Here is a screen shot.

Ill humor you and do a scan, But its not malware! 

Computer is less then two weeks old and has not been on any sketchy sites.  Seeing how its creating "Energy Management" and "Onekey Theater" folders inside the Lenovo folder its clearly applications linked to the manufacturer.

Let me assure you that by doing a scan  you won't be humoring me,

 

you'll be doing yourself and your pc a favour.

 

You don't need to go to any ''sketchy''sites as you put it.,

 

to get infected.

 

İ'm reluctant to click on the link you provided,so please do the scans and then we'll take it from there.

 

Also if you don't have   http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html the FREE Version

 

and   http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free also the FREE version,

 

i would recommend both,as they're very good tools,and do NOT conflict with any existing antimalware programs.

 

Please make sure to always Update them BEFORE you scan.
