Choppy/Skipping Audio (Windows 10)

I have an old Inspiron 560 that is still working great and I recently upgrated to Windows 10.

About 4 years ago I came across a choppy/skipping audio problem and I fixed it disabling Dell Diag Control Device.

However, ever since I upgraded to Windows 10, the problem is back.

I have done everything on this thread:

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3517/p/19462013/20164462

but I actually can't find any of the things listed there.

I can't find Dell Diag Control Device.

Can't find Dell Data Vault or Dell Data Vault Wizard

Can't find Dell Support Assist.

What could be the problem? It's gotta be something that I need to remove/disable, because the same symptoms are there: every 60 minutes, some skipping on the audio appears and it's driving me crazy.

Nothing in the thread above mentions Windows 10, so maybe that's it... ?

Is it that I just don't know how to find and remove/disable the above system devices? Is it somewhere else?

I appreciate any help.

Thanks!
