I performed a clean install of windows 10 (pro) on my y50, installed all drivers but the lenovo utility app lenovo provides for windows 10 doesn't start after installing.
This is a very important application for me and without it i'd probably roll back to windows 8.1 so any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm having the exact same issue here with the Y50 4K. Did you upgrade using the Windows 10 upgrade tool? or did you get the official automatic update? Because in my case I waited a couple of days and I didn't receive the update so I decided to use the upgrade tool and did a clean install. But now the interface seems laggy but it runs just fine on my 5 year old laptop that I upgraded through the automatic upgrade.... I'm starting to think that I shouldn't have upgraded manually because it doesn't make sense that my 5 year old laptop runs smoother than my Y50.

For example the 3 finger gestures are not very responsive, sometimes i have to try a couple of times before it works. same thing with my virtual desktops and animations in general are laggy...

arasheed, I wanted to ask the same. It is strange that it is not explained anywhere what does Lenovo utility does, but it is in download page for your laptop. I just guessed about what is it for.
Lenovo utility does not appear in Start menu after installation, but it is installed in C:/Program Files/Lenovo/LenovoUtility. As you can see, in taskbar you have "Lenovo Utility" which is utility.exe. It just adds pop up windows when you press Caps Lock or Num Lock, like in Linux Mint cinnamon.
