Default Lenovo's laptops internal software (inside motherboard) changes Windows files.

I don't want call software inside motherboard which is UEFI compatible
a firmware, because firmware by definition is small, simple
and doesn't do much. Nevermind.
Lenovo's G50-80 and Y40-80 changes Windows files to display a dialog box.
It was documented on laptops that had their HDDs cleaned and even changed
to new ones, then there was installed Windows from iso images from Microsoft.
Even after that dialog box shows. Laptops changes file
C:\Windows\system32\0409\zz_sec\autobin.exe
