Thanks for driver tip vibber - however, uninstaller worked, installer failed on Inspiron 15 - 5570 with some incompatibility error... retried with run as administrator. Hmm. ok, trying the recommended one via the support assistant.
File Name: Realtek-High-Definition-Audio-Driver_MMKKK_WIN_184.108.40.20655_A12_02.EXE
Will post update after I retry ... By the way, there are a number of recommended manual updates to do including BIOS etc.

It appears the latest release (see below) has started causing this issue again when using any type of docking station. Which is funny because the fix included in this update was supposed to improve the sound quality while docked
I have the same problem. For example at the moment WaveSysSvc Service Application is using 23.8% of the CPU, for no reason (there is no music playing or any other audio being used). My XPS 13 is connected to a Dell USB 3.0 Ultra HD/4K Triple Display Docking Station (D3100). What can be done?
same here, Windows takes forever to come up, 30-40% CPU by WavesSysSvc service. This is on my Dell Latitude 5490 (Intel Core i5-7300U).
