Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox goes live

Begining today, customers in the US who have Lenovo Message Center Plus installed and active on their systems will receive notification that the new Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox is available for installation.   In coming weeks, these notifications will roll out in other languages and other countries.

Here is an example of what customers with MCP installed and active will see on their systems when the Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox is offered...

Users electing to install the new Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox will click the install now button in the lower right corner of the MCP notification.  The install should go smoothly, with a few acceptance boxes and the usual progress indicators typical of most application installations.
