    cetjunior that is what is driving me crazy. I have not seen it our two laptops running 8 & the new Lenovo that my mother in law just got.

    Does it also do it in Safe Mode? What GPU is on your machine? If you kill all of the Lenovo software, does it do it?

    Also stuff can carry over from your Microsoft log in to the other machine, unless you used a local account.

    See ya!
    That is from Lenovo's desktop assist that they wrapped into the OS as I stated before. If it is an OEM edition, it should not be happening.
