A bios update is done for a specific reason ie support a new processor, fix a problem you are encountering, etc NOT to just have the latest bios.
In fairness, I've seen the Lenovo Vantage app push out BIOS updates along with other system drivers. Not the best idea, of course, since they're not always crucial.

Yes well it was pushed alright it started and I tried ti stop it. My Lenovo was having issues already. Argh! I tried to go in to reset the bios the problem was it did not come apart in the center of the laptop. So there goes that idea.
