I recently solved a problem that seems to be plaguing Windows 10 users. After I updated my Surface Pro 2 to Windows 10 and attached my keyboard, a task called ‘SPOCJS’ (more specifically, the service ‘Jack Sensing Device for USB Audio’) would continually take up more and more RAM until Windows would crash.
Anyways, since I couldn’t find a guide anywhere to fix this, I made one myself! Here’s how to fix it:
- Search for the ‘Services’ program from the Start Menu and open it.
- Scroll down to ‘Jack Sensing Device for USB Audio’.
- Right-click on it and click Properties.
- Click the menu next to ‘Startup type’ and change it to disabled.
- Click OK.
The memory leak should be gone now.
