system interface foundation device

when i try to update system interface foundation device it says it cannot install update because the driver is marked for deletion.. i tried installing the file from the lenovo website and when i try to install it says this version allready installed. i noticed this problem because i am experiencing other problems. i cannot download podcasts on itunes, but movies and tv shows work, and i thought maybe my drivers are out of date. this is the only one that says it needs updating, but it also says it cannot install. i dont know if this driver would be causing the other problems.

Re: system interface foundation device

Hello Coalminecanary

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Check the solution on this post, see if this may be able to help you out at all.


"This is what I've done to fix it:


1. Open "Start" -> "Settings" -> "Privacy " -> "Other Devices"


2. Enable "Let apps use my ..."  [LAPTOP / COMPUTER etc]


3. Enable "Let these apps use my ..." [LAPTOP / COMPUTER etc] FOR:

  •     Lenovo Settings
  •     Lenovo Companion

Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion started working fine after this."


Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
