    That's odd, I don't have any of those headers above my apps, just my Skydrive image, like you have. Those may be apps given to you by the OEM? They like to brand things. Yes, that is what it is, it is some sort of Branding function, they gave you those apps, they want you to know they gave them to you. If the system was a Dell system I'd want to change it...

    Yep. Its from the manufacturer. I almost returned my Sony Vaio but luckily found the answer a hour before I was going to return it.

    So your system came with a user already named "Lenovo"? Grr, most OEM's at least set the systems up so that you can choose your own name the first time it boots up. I know those mid-2000's eMachines eTowers always came named "Owner" heh.

    Oh well, despite the "Lenovo Apps" thing, Lenovos are pretty good machines, I take it that you have the "Biometric" fingerprint scanner? I love playing with those whenever I work on laptops that have that.
