    Hi,

    If anyone has a Lenovo Laptop or Desktop PC you may have seen (either in Services or Remove/Install in Control Panel) some odd apps under the name of Pokki and some by Lenovo.

    A bit of information gathering tells that the Pokki apps are useless and eat up resources.

    If you are confident enough to uninstall the Lenovo apps you can but leave the keyboard driver.

    After removing these two collections of apps (I use Iobit Uninstaller, it does a far better job than Control Panel Uninstall) - restart and watch your machine fly. !!.

    All that I have seen tells of no danger to system stability in removing these cludges and a few days of PC use seems to verify that.

    Cheers,

    Aunty Jack.

    That sounds like a Superfish variant (resource hogger).
