How to fix ‘SPOCJS’ memory leak on Windows 10

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:

  1. Search for the ‘Services’ program from the Start Menu and open it.
  2. Scroll down to ‘Jack Sensing Device for USB Audio’.
  3. Right-click on it and click Properties.
  4. Click the menu next to ‘Startup type’ and change it to disabled.
  5. Click OK.

You’re done!

The memory leak should be gone now.
