I'm pretty sure you meant UNinstall since that would fit with what's been seen here.

It's a utility software for retail motherboards, it doesn't apply to your Lenovo Laptop.

The temp reading was done running battery alone. I havent open many chrome tabs, videos or use computed for many hours these days, and so far no BSOD, i will be on my computer for the rest of the day until i get a BSOD to upload a the dumplog. Ill test withouth the battery too
I mentioned that because of the other post I suppose I should have ignored but not knowing if you had any Gigabyte hardware installed I wasn't sure.
My own experience was with a Gigabyte board and the crap install disk it came with - mind you most disks supplies with boards are usually well out of date when one buys them unless they are standing at the end of the production line!!

Now the temps would not be affected by running a power adaptor and in fact I think I mentioned running on battery would produce heat in itself and if the battery was being used on it's own and / or was being actively charged form a very low level.
Now just for your info those lithium ion batteries should never be allowed to run completely flat because it damages the chemical makeup of the battery.
Moreover the lithium batteries do decay for want of a better term from the instant they are manufactured - that is they have a limited shelf life and life in general use and as I have just stated running them flat on a regular basis particularly will wreck them.
A couple of links if you are interested Debunking Battery Life Myths for Mobile Phones, Tablets, and Laptops & if you are really really interested.

So in a sense what I am saying just because it is running on the battery it could POSSIBLY be that the battery is not putting out the correct voltage or current.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Ok ive been doing the stuff that was giving me the BSOD, and i have got none so far. I have only done two things after the last BSOD:
1.- Uninstalled kaspersky antivirus (I only installed trial version after the bsod started)
2.- Downloaded and Ran "CCleaner"

Im now running "verifier" ill just leave the computer on for the rest of the day to see if a BSOD shows up.
Could it be a registry error??

Possibly Chris now you can run these in safe mode to check to see if the OS (registry) has become corrupted< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

and for good measure these

ADW download from bleeping computerdelete any rubbish found with the malware scans

(with ADW ifyou are running Kaspersky it will throw it up as malware just overrideKaspersky by ignoring it or disabling it for the duration of the scan)

Now on Kaspersky I have been using it for the last five years and there have been bugs from time to time and to be honest the current version (2015 (a) ) is the buggiest one yet. Now this is entirely up to you and I am biased of course if the BSOD's do not return try the Kaspersky again because the bugs I mentioned were early on in the piece when I upgraded the version from 14 to 15.
I say that because Kaspersky apart from being good and well rated is also really cheap if you look for deals - my current licences cost me about $0.075 per day (7.5 cents), and I run it on all my five machines.

Having said that you can get a load of free AV stuff from here Free Windows Desktop Software Security List | Gizmo's Freeware check out the real time stuff.
