I wonder why they do not take such reports seriously and use unnecessary time before supplying a patch. Oh well, nothing new under the sun though and uninstalling is only for the better.
Bundled "help" software will get you in trouble, automatic driver updating tools too for that matter.
I have used Lenovo's Thinkpads the last 10 years T-410/T-500, W-540, X-240 etc. and they have always worked great, but I have never used their support programs, not even the Powermanagement driver (I use TP Fancontrol where I can decide what is correct myself).
In my opinion, Lenovo's has dropped in quality the last few years, and I now come across just as many Lenovo's as other Machines in spare time while executing my waiting game (aka Server work/update/upgrade). What is a little odd is that the best way to rectify the trouble is to reinstall the computer from scratch.
That opinion is not only valid for Lenovo's though, any brand I have used, being it HP, Dell, Acer, I always reinstall from scratch.
The second best is to uninstall all unnecessary "support" utilites, which is the method selected professionally
