Hey guys.

just finished formating my computer (using the built in windows 8 feature). once it was up and running i uninstalled all the built in stuff lenovo brings with the computer using revo uninstaller. in the procces i also removed all registry and files those programs left.. but now theres a probelm:

this pops up every once in a while. usually when i install something. note that this is just one messege out of two! the other one looks the same but reffers to a different file - Lenovo-25207.vbs which sits in the same folder.

any ideas?

Tank out.

Right click the .vbs file - open with notepad - check the second line for a file/folder reference - and then see whether that file/folder exists....

Ill do that right away! But two question:

1. If they don't exist - what then?
2. How do I track down the program running the script in the first place? I tried deleting those files only to get a different t error stating it can't find those files..

Thanks

1) Depends which dependencies it's looking for...
2) check event viewer for the error - may have a reference to the calling app as well

Deleting will have a knock-on effect i.e. not good... if you can send me the files I'll check the script code to see what it does...

ok, i tried to find it in the event viewer without success :(

the files contain the following script:

Set shellObject = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")resultCode = shellObject.Run ("""C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\SupportTVSU/SupportFeed.CMD""", 0, True)
Set shellObject = Nothing
WScript.Quit resultCode

and the second file:

Set shellObject = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
resultCode = shellObject.Run ("""C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\SupportTVSU/SupportFeed.CMD""", 0, True)
Set shellObject = Nothing
WScript.Quit resultCode

both reffer to the same place, and it dosnt exist.
