Wave MaxxAudio pegging memory and CPU with latest driver

Latitude 5520

Lately, my machine has been having issues with the latest Wave Maxx Audio service pegging my CPU and taking up to 3-400Mb of memory.  It's not all the time, but it does happen if I visit Youtube with one of my browsers. I thought this was fixed a year or two ago? Anyone else noticing this?  I'm going to disable the loading it up in StartUp again as it's impacting our entire organization with this laptop.

Yeah, you weren't the only one who thought so. I've researched this and noticed a lot of reports spanned across years. So it seems that Dell has been always struggling with making Waves/Maxx stable. This issue is a new one, seems unrelated to the previous issues with this driver.

This issue exists on Precision series with the latest versions of the drivers. So far I've found no solution.
