Hi, I made a huge mistake when I decided to install lenovo settings dependancy program... among other bugs, I noticed that I can see my optical drive twice in My computer

Not only I saw it twice, but the Lenovo shortcut didn't really work.. it was saying its Powered Off even if it wasn't... So I decided to unisntall this lenovo software and now I see this...When I click on it, it says the modul couldn't be found... any idea how to remove the bloody shortcut?

I don't know where you configure turning DVD on or off in Windows 8, but in Windows 7 that's configured in Power Manager, and the only thing needed besides that are the power management driver and intel rapid storage technology driver.

You need to reinstall Power Manager driver. It can be found here http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/grku10ww.exe

So I managed to at least making it work properly. by installing the power management driver- dependency package - lenovo settings win8 store app.... now my question is: I would like to keep this functionality of turning my optical drive on and off... but i dont really need all that software around.. which of these 3 can i uninstall and keep this functionality?

You don't really need the latter two.
