one known severe issue with Dell
machines is a process called "Dell SupportAssist Remediation"
using huge amounts of memory due to a memory leak. Check using
Task Manager to see if you have this problem.
I believe the relevant advice from Dell
Tech Support is:
"to uninstall, in this order, Dell
Support Assist, Dell Support Assist Agent, then Dell Support
Assist Remediation. Reboot. Then reinstall Dell Support Assist
from the website, but do not reinstall remediation."

I'm an Dell XPS user as well, and am seeing the same issue.
Not often, but just a pain. What "Dell related entities" can I
delete. Sure don't want to mess things up. Thanks, Herb WB8ASI

This was a big topic back a few months ago. In my case, the
Flex folks suggested it had to do with latency in the driver
interrupt code. Do a search for "latency" and/or " WSJT
decoding stopping". In my case, after weeks of sleuthing, and a
lot of watching "Latency Monitor" results, I found that Dell (my
machine is a Dell XPS) had loaded a lot of 'customer experience'
monitoring software that ran in the background. There were/are
lots of references to this issue if you do a more global search
for sound recording glitches related to latency in the drivers
getting out of hand. I removed all of the Dell related entities
from the Control Panel, rebooted, and haven't had a fault
since. I can't really swear definitively that this was the
cause, since I was also making a few other changes (like
reverting to a prior version of WIndows (I have since gone back
to the current version), disabling some plug and play drivers
(but not all). But at least one other person followed those
steps and fixed his problem as well.
