Disabling Lenovo Vantage nagware? How?

"Lenovo Vantage now supports voice control", and doesn't take no for an answer. I get a popup asking if I'd like to install it every hour or so, in case I've forgotten or changed my mind. It's like a good old fashinoned adware infection!

 

How do I get this popup disabled - do I need to root out the entire Lenovo Solution Center? I can't find a "lenovo vantage" app installed on my computer either - what is it that is causing these popups? I kind of like the Solution Center, as I do believe in timely driver updates.

 

The popup comes in the "notifications" tray to the right in my popupbar.

You should be able to right-click on the notification that you don't like, and then "turn off notifications for Lenovo Vantage".

Though I'm not sure why Vantage is spamming you like this.  It's not our intention, and I haven't seen that particular notification more than once.

I have the same thing on a t420/win10pro.  Not quite every hour, but close, and there are 2 or 3 at once when I start/restart.  Right clicking does not work on my machine.

Re: Disabling Lenovo Vantage nagware? How?

just bought my first new laptop since 2008.

so far not impressed with lenovo.

 

it's amazing my old acer emachine runs twice as

fast as this......

 

could it be the bloated hidden files?  keep getting

that annoying vantage ad, several ads actually, will

have to start taking photos.

 

i already bought the **bleep** machine.  isn't that

enough?

Same thing here! Spammed every hour about installing SurfEasy, Dashlane and other products.

Re: Disabling Lenovo Vantage nagware? How?

I received a first spam message now (Dashlane). I immediately uninstalled Lenovo Vantage. Who needs such crap, for almost no value?
