I have two Dell Laptops. One laptop is 6 years old and is running Win10 that was installed as an in-place upgrade when Win10 first came out. The other laptop is brand new, out of the box two weeks ago, and is also running Win10.
The fan on the new laptop runs constantly and never stops. Task Manager shows that wsappx is using roughly 20% of the CPU, 370mb of memory, and 0.1mb/s of disk usage. Wsappx is also running constantly and never stops. By comparison the old laptop shows that wsappx is using a very small amount of system resources or is not running at all. On both laptops the Windows Store settings are set identically On the new laptop Windows Store currently shows no pending updates and the list of app updates history shows that apps are being updated regularly.
I have read a great deal about this issue but have not tried any of the suggested solutions (hacks) outside of disabling automatic updates in the Store, to no avail.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to get wsappx to stop doing whatever it thinks it's doing, and does anyone have any ideas why it's using so much of the new laptop's resources when compared to the old laptop?
