So I updated to windows 10 about 2 months ago (fresh install) everything worked great except occasional audio popping using USB headphones. I tried several things to try and fix it, long story short, I downloaded LatencyMon and let it run for about an hour, When I came back I found latency spikes in ndis.sys that went up to about 1100 Ás. Now I don't have a WLAN card so I am assuming this is my onboard network adapter. Tried updating to the latest driver from realtek, alas it did not fix it. Changed power settings to high, disabled audio enhancements. Tried several things that just don't seem to work. Any idea how I could fix this?

Here is a copy of the LatencyMon Report

CONCLUSION
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
Your system seems to be having difficulty handling real-time audio and other tasks. You may experience drop outs, clicks or pops due to buffer underruns. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. At least one detected problem appears to be network related. In case you are using a WLAN adapter, try disabling it to get better results. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.
LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 0:21:34 (h:mm:ss) on all processors.

MEASURED INTERRUPT TO USER PROCESS LATENCIES
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution. This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.
Highest measured interrupt to process latency (Ás): 808.807338
Average measured interrupt to process latency (Ás): 5.556328
Highest measured interrupt to DPC latency (Ás): 804.957708
Average measured interrupt to DPC latency (Ás): 1.281891

REPORTED DPCs
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
DPC routines are part of the interrupt servicing dispatch mechanism and disable the possibility for a process to utilize the CPU while it is interrupted until the DPC has finished execution.

REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.
NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.
Process with highest pagefault count: svchost.exe
Total number of hard pagefaults 10598
Hard pagefault count of hardest hit process: 1781
Highest hard pagefault resolution time (Ás): 1942144.624436
Total time spent in hard pagefaults (%): 1.237545
Number of processes hit: 35
