Lenovo System Update Error Gathering User Information


The reason why this error might occur during a system update is not known. However, this error does occur and therefore has a workaround. The solution to this error, however, is a little technical.

First, remove all previous log files from your system. Click on Start->Run->Secpol.msc and disable System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing.

In C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\System Update\session\system\SSClientCommon add the following lines.

<Name>Windows 7 Professional</Name>
<ServiceRelease>Service Pack 1</ServiceRelease>
<OSQuest>Windows 7</OSQuest>
