    $RECYCLE.BIN on my external drives

    The recycle bin is normal on all internal and external drives, it's a Windows feature. It also has nothing to do with the inability to eject the drive. Windows does what's called lazy writing which means exactly what it sounds like. It doesn't get write everything right away, so you just need...

    How do we remove unwanted tasks?

    No cortana isn't spying on you, nor is Windows in general. Everything in the task manager is a running process many of which are needed for the computer to function and I would not disable WD scans. These periodically check your system for malware and don't run all the time. The Installer...

    sort taskbar to show running programs alphabetically

    an app opens chrome on certain websites

    Well step one would be to either take it to a shop and have them clean it or reinstall Windows. Trying to walk you through cleanup would take a long time, possibly end up with you damaging the system which would require a reinstall anyways or not getting it cleaned up properly. Step two...

    New Computer - Recover Encrypted Files?

    I've never bother with EFS, but I'm pretty sure all you need to do is import the certificate and the files should open normally. There are tons of guides for recovering EFS files.

    New Computer - Recover Encrypted Files?

    Then it's EFS, this is tied to a user certificate on the computer. You would need to export the certificate before re-installing Windows. Otherwise there isn't a way to decrypt those files.

    Server 2016 Unresponsive - Windows Installer

    How is software deployed in the environment? GPO, some packaging system like SCCM or Altaris? Also you didn't run through my other suggestion from my last post. Get procexp and look at the running windows installer processes, specifically the commandline column they may give you an indicator...
