    I suspect if just runs the fan on max speed for a period of time. Not very effective. I would use the dust removal option presented in post #5 a couple times a year (depending on environment).

    I don't see how this will work with software. The only thing it might do is run the fan in reverse.

    I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 lappy and first took it apart to clean and inspect it after a year of use.
    It was very clean on the inside and the vane's on the fan needed only light cleaning.
    I used a ordinary vacuum cleaner to do it. No sense in wasting money on a can of air.

    I suspect also it only runs the fan in reverse, probably at highest speed possible. How effective or necessary it is more likely depends on how much dust it sees and sucks in during normal service and the size and consistency/composition of the particles. More effective for most time spent in the desert perhaps than next to the deep fryers and grill of your local greasy spoon.

    Thanks, having been on Win 7 for ages it sounded like it had become a standard app since then, also same here I vacuumed about every six months and never had a problem either.

    My lappy has the intake vents on the bottom.
    When I removed the bottom cover, I saw there is a fine mesh material on the inside of these vents.
    So, only very fine dust particle's can get in, this is why it was so clean when I opened it after a year.

    Also, I have the habit of vacuuming the both the keyboard and bottom every week or two
    with a brush attachment.

    Please post back and let us know if you can see what it did during and after you run it.

    Win 10 pro Upgraded from 8.1

    Asus has tunnels for expelling dust, there theory is that dust will migrate by centrifugal force to the outside edges of the fan blades where it is expelled out of dust tunnels. they have rubber plugs to plug these tunnels when the notebook is not in use.
    This is Asus theory and Implementation. There is no software to make this happen. In theory you pull the plugs and the dust come out the dust tunnels.

    I have no Idea what Lenovo theory is I think you'll have to ask them. I'm quite sure this has nothing to do with window 10
