2. is it just limiting the functions and causing inconvenience of is it key logging and/or some other thing that can look at / access private data. ?

windows update fails

Also the MBAM report here windows update fails lists a few also.

I would have to agree with Tews on this one, imaging would have saved alot of time. And a wipe and clean install after retrieving your important data would be the way to go.
