1.Reinstall Windows with clean, newest Win 10 .iso  and let it download drivers by itself. Don't ever install drivers from OEM website and/or use windows notebook out of the box because:

-bundled a lot of bloatware
-reinstall will make sure you get the currently newest drivers instead of ones sitting on the drive since leaving factory
-OEM specific drivers which have NO benefit over generic ones except they are not updated regurarly(realtek audio is great example)
-drivers are not a driver-only package but are bundled with additional software which is 95% of the time bloatware

Recently was removing not only space wasting and autostart filling up junk but also Dell ControlVault software from company computers which was causing a lot of errors in WIM(windows instrumentation management) causing constant ~30%CPU usage. EVEN if newer versions dont have this issue, regular customer would be better off without it rather than with this faulty, old, preinstalled version. (computer works just fine without it)

Out of the box Windows just like Android is used by companies for additional revenue through those third-party, unnecessary software installs.

Use OEM websites only for Bios/UEFI, Intel Management Engine firmware and other firmware upgrades(and maybe to have a general idea what drivers needs to be installed if going the manual way)
