Lenovo Laptops With Adware?

Some of Lenovo’s laptops have been shipped with adware installed, and it wasn’t an accident. Lenovo thought it would be a good idea if their new laptops showed popup ads to convince you buy more Lenovo products.

It’s bad form, a new computer shouldn’t be popping up ads without your consent. Lenovo generally build good quality machines but this move is ethically wrong.

  1. It’s been quite a shocker. Especially with a new computer within its first 30 days out of the box. I am working on a way to disable this function with advice from other users. But I gotta say. The reason I went with the ‘more’ expensive Lenovo instead of the cheaper Compaq was the fact that to me IBM is a trusted name. But if they continue to do business like this they are going to lose a lot of the consumers trust.
