I just upgraded to Windows 8 and guess what? You need a different version of the program on Windows 8. Now, how do I remove it? I can't deactivate it in BIOS. Do I have to re-install Windows 7 again to uninstall this program?

It is a laptop yes, X230 Tablet. How do I remove it?

What kinds of problems is this causing? –  Tanner Oct 26 '12 at 21:28
    
The laptop will lock down after 21 days... :p Because it cant't talk to intel. –  Algific Oct 26 '12 at 21:31
    
This question does not provide any helpful information for us to answer it correctly. I'm voting to close. –  user3463 Oct 26 '12 at 21:35

"Close this and I'll just get up another one." The preferred method is to edit the question to resolve the problem and your question will be reopened. –  Scott Chamberlain Oct 26 '12 at 22:00

I don't think you're supposed to be able to remove it. Isn't that the whole point? –  Oliver Salzburg Oct 26 '12 at 22:04

From what I can tell lenovo provides the software for windows 8. Just use the software provided for windows 8, and if you still want to remove it, you should be able to disable it from inside the software without re-installing windows 7. After that you can just uninstall the management software if you wish.

Is this a laptop? You should provide more information about your hardware as there are model-specific ways to disable Intel AMT(which in turn disables Intel vPro/"anti-theft").

Of course its a laptop, the author, even said ( by a comment ) well before your answer it was one. –  Ramhound Oct 26 '12 at 21:56

Here is an article from Intel on just your situation. Hope this helps http://www.intel.com/support/services/anti-theft-svc/sb/CS-033857.htm

Welcome to Super User! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  slhck Mar 20 '13 at 17:59
