Windows 10 can't uninstall power manager or fingerprint manager

2017-08-09, 0:04 AM

Hello. I'm having issues with my t450S not being able to go in to sleep mode. Everything I've read says that these two programs have major issues with Windows 10 and could be the source of my problem. I go to uninstall and it says that the program can't run on this version of Windows. Ok, so I have tried many of the solutions offered in this forum and nothing has worked thus far:


c:\swtools\readyapps\pwrmgrv\setup.exe -l0x9 -AddRemove

* change compatibility mode of programs and try then

* straight up add/remove button


Please let me know what I can do to get these off my system (without reverting back to Windows 7). 


Thank you!

Welcome to the hole to nowhere. I assume you read that 45 mile long post to nowhere,with a zillion fix recommends.

Use your time more wisely.

(1) Buy SSD and SSD bracket for your machine.

(2)Install windows 10 creators edition on SSD.

(3) Use external item to connect old HDD via USB.

(4)Install all Lenovo software from your support page. 

(5)Install all other software, aol, quicken, windows office.

(6) While win 10 HDD is running, use ALL known backups from your software vendors, ie aol, quicken, office etc.

(7)Copy your pics, email, etc from old HDD to new clean SSD.


Going back to win 7, forget it.

When you are done, you have a New Slick surfboard. Not a muddy swap with snakes, etc. 


Your T450s is Officially supported win 10 Lenovo.

You took the shortcut. Lenovo did give directions. 



The above recommends will bypass the shortcut, back to win7, etc.

Clean and mean is better than mud.

Expense: Your time and a external USB HDD connector item. +$70 SSD(buy on sale).

You will get better educated on DISASTER recovery solutions for your machine.


You should also purchase a Seagate external USB-HDD slimline 1 TB HDD to cover your buns in the rain.


Buy it on sale. $44. Get the one with Seagate dashboard (actually www.nero.com backup incremental). You can store windows backup System Image here. Create your own folder, drag and drop.


Shopping list:

(1)SSD 2.5 inch

(2)SSD enclosure bracket

(3)External 1TB USB-HDD with Seagate Dashboard software

(4)Optional: USB-HDD item with your current HDD inside. Explore current HDD inside your machine as 2nd drive. ie, SSD and HDD.
