    A few good advices before and after upgrade!


    A few good advices before upgrading: Uninstall your current antivirus, as it can cause you to start with black screen just after you have upgraded. Uninstall all programs you don’t need, and If your on a Thinkpad then uninstall all Lenovo software but make a list of it first and then download newest version.


    If you are using a thinkpad and already upgraded and have constant HDD activity then I suggest to uninstall the following: SystemInterfaceFoundation.exe, systemupdate507-2015-07-01.exe, ThinkSettingsDependency.exe – then re-installing them 1 by 1 untill you find which one is causing it, for me it were the SystemInterfaceFoundation.exe which is required by Lenovo Companion(Forced upon my system without consent). I’m done installing any of Lenovo’s garbage programs.



    Do not use System restore until you have copied your files to a usb drive or dvd, it deleted my files from the download folder – major BUG – as its suppose to keep your files and restore your system to a working condition. Not delete your files! MS programmers strike again

    First thing I do with my ThinkPad's is clean install, and I never load any of the Lenovo software back on. I'll check the site for specific hardware drivers and BIOS updates if necessary, but thats it. Loving my W550s and Windows 10 Pro, and running like a charm on my old T510

    Try checking your All apps in startmenu - I think you will see Lenovo companion there - Forced upon you without consent.

    Hi there

    YOU FORGOT THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE OF ALL (Caps here on purpose).

    Before starting anything BACK UP YOUR CURRENT SYSTEM. !!! You can restore if things don't work out properly.
