Lenovo ThinkVantage ToolBox v6.0.5692.08

Vista 32 ThinkCentre model 7484 CTO. ToolBox has worked fine until just a couple of days ago - I believe there was an update done. Now, everytime the computer is "on" the Toolbox constantly runs the scan - it runs to completion and within 2 minutes, starts again and runs to completion and then again. No problems are ever found. The schedule shows it running once a month. In other words, the scan is running almost constantly!

How do I stop this behavior?

Re: Lenovo ThinkVantage ToolBox v6.0.5692.08

I am having the same issue.  I keep getting the popup asking me where I want to run the scan.  I let it run, and then I still get the popup message 15 minutes later. This even though the hardware scan is set to run once a month.

Used ThinkVantage Tools to check for and apply all updates. 


Now having this problem on a new X120e.  The diags all pass, but after some time passes, maybe an hour, it notifies it will begin scanning again.

@emark31 and ssabbini,

What version of TVT you have installed?


What settings do have you for the hardware scan?
