Dell Data Vault Data Collection Service Running amok

I just upgraded my Win10 X51 to the new creator version and now Dell Data Vault Data Collection Service has been running at 25+% for several hours.  How do I make this service stop overconsuming processor time?


Alienware X51 R3, Intel® Core™ i7-6700 (8MB Cache, up to 4.0GHz with Turbo Boost Technology) Includes Hyper-Threading.  Memory: 16GB (2x8GB) 2133MHz DDR4 Non-ECC

If you install Dell SupportAssist 'Dell Data Vault' sneaks in and doesn't show up under Programs and Features.  Bub BYE Dell SupportAssist.

I'm on inspiron 3558 (Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz, 2201 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)). 

Dell Data Vault Data Collection Service, not only eats up my CPU usage, it also seems to cause other programs to use too much CPU. When I removed it usin "Bulk **bleep** Uninstaller", the whole system went quite, my 100% disk usage dropped and my CPU runs nicely at around 20% or less. 

Please can we have a long term fix for this issue.
