This patch is used to improve your computer performance that is impacted by the ThinkVantage Registry Monitor Service.  It is not recommended to disable this service.  I would recommed to post the actual problem and address it.
For a better understanding I have ectracted below information from IBM's website for you.
The ThinkVantage Registry Monitor Service is a common service that will automatically start when either ThinkVantage Client Security Solution program, ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery program or
ThinkVantage System Update program is installed. It may impact your computer performance in the following ways:
- Accessing the Windows registry frequently during the Windows startup which may increase Windows startup time
- Creating an individual thread for every registry key that it monitors
- Monitoring the same registry key repeatedly in several monitor threads
- Monitoring the registry keys that are not specified for the current user

I just had this problem with a Lenovo X200 laptop, and installing the patch seems to help a bit.  but the CPU loading still seems to go up to 40-50% even when idle...  but definitely, it was better than before which the CPU loading was at 100% and even IE could not be use to browse websites.  Thanks for the suggestion
