Maybe if you stick with a respected, mainstream software, it could really help you out. Or in my case, make a conundrum, I don't know. Here is DUMo's output, yikes! And then Intel--wth? Intel Management Engine--I thought I nuked it, and yes, there's a big update available.
Check out Intel's result--lol. I focused only on NVIDIA and chipset/SSD following clean install. OK, something to explore. So, nowadays, maybe it's not a bad idea to run this type of utility, you don't have to apply anything and respected makers of these things want your business, not to harm you. Read the installer before clicking "Accept."
: Ended up disabling IME in Device Manager as there was no entry for it in the BIOS. Credit this thread and DUMo with drawing my attention to this hidden (to me) vulnerability. :emoji_ok_hand:
