My Lenovo IBM ThinkPad starts with a suservice.exe error message

Posted on 2008-11-18

Here's the dialog box I get on bootup-
Suservice.exe common language runtime debugging service
Application has generated an exception that could not be handled
Process id= oxff8 (4088) Thread id=oxff8 (4088)
Ok to terminate the application

Then sometimes it fully boots up sometimes it freezes

    Accepted Solution

    Suservice.exe is the Lenovo Thinkvantage System Update Service. One simple solution would to be uninstall this software if you do not use it. If you do use it you want want to uninstall it and get a more recent version from Lenovo. Hopefully this will solve your issue.
    Good luck.
