    Removing an Advet Video


    Have a new Lenovo Laptop and have cleaned up most of the bloat but one item keeps popping up. A video of the highlights of the laptop keeps playing after each period of 30 or 40 secs of inactivity. I move the cursor and the video disappears till the next period of inactivity. Very annoying. I've looked everywhere I could think of, libraries,task manager, both drives etc etc... It is well hidden or disguised. Could someone please point to where the video is located or where it's executed from

    Dam - obvious - Went straight to Personalization hit the Screen Saver icon and there it was. Thank you very much.

    Hahaha, had the same thing on a Lenovo lapslop I worked on a few weeks ago. Maybe you can alter the screen saver and pull out the ad crap. But Ribbons is good enough for me.,
