Re: Removing it

I had to take my business laptop to a security expert. He told me it was a rather difficult task to remove all the convoluted crap Lenovo thoughtfully installed on my machine. (He likes this kind of stuff)

I am fortunate he is a friend and it didn't cost me much. There was re-spawning code hidden in innocuous looking sections of the root directory.

I will NEVER buy a Lenovo again.
