Lenovo System Update -- why was it installed today?

2019-08-01, 18:39 PM

Lenovo Vantage has a selecton for system update and I have been using that.


Today, out of the blue, a stand-alone application called "Lenovo System Update" was installed.


  1. Why? What does it get me that I don't already have as part of Lenovo Vantage?
  2. What happens if I uninstall it?
  3. There is one update that it says can't be installed: Intel Graphics Driver. I am offerd the option of installing it manually. I am reluctant to do that: If Lenovo Update can't install it, how can I do better?
  4. The Lenovo Vantage update process also will not install it but does not give me the manual option.

ASSIDE: The interface is confusing. Selecting "Next" does not do an install. I have to first select "download." If that's the next step, why doesn't "next" get me there?


ASSIDE #2: The above has a numbered list but after I post that formatting is gone. When re-editing it shows as a numbered list (good) but after posting it does not (bad).
