Re: Warning!! Lenovo Pre-Installed Software ....

Adware manufactures are very active these days.

Re: Warning!! Lenovo Pre-Installed Software ....


Microsoft has pushed out an update to Windows Defender. It is removing the Superfish certificate. This will help protect those who were not aware of issue or did not know how to remove the certificate. However, the Firefox certificate remains in place.

 

I'll try to update this post if anything changes.

Re: Potentially Unwanted Program

 I have this garbage on my Y50, in the mean time Lenovo should send us all the latest straight Windows 8.1 on thumb drives so we can do a clean install.

UPDATE -  Lenovo has updated the removal instructions for superfish to address both the application and the certificates for multiple browsers including Firefox.

Re: Potentially Unwanted Program

Can you advise when there will be a tool to COMPLETELY remove this from machines please - i.e. a vanilla install of Windows. The recovery partition and backups still have Superfish and the dangerous certificates on. This is a litmus test of how serious and sorry Lenovo actually is (rather than corporate crocodile tears and some wordsmith crafted text on how important 'security' is to the company).

Re: Potentially Unwanted Program

Well, lenovo, you've basically flushed your credibility down the drain. Good luck getting people to actually think about buying your products now. Having your mods tailor the posts isn't helping you either I'm afraid.

Re: Potentially Unwanted Program - Superfish VisualDiscovery

This is the first time that I have heard of this. Did you remove the certificate manually? If so, are you sure you removed the correct one?  This is a user to user forum. We do not work for Lenovo. Perhaps if someone else has the same problem he or she will let us know.
