I am using the Plugable UD-3900 docking station and the latest Windows 10 driver (DisplayLink 8.0 M1).
Ever since the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, my CPU Usage has been higher than normal. I checked the Task Manager and found that the process “Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework Host Process” was the culprit.
When watching a video on my monitor that’s connected to the docking station via HDMI, the CPU usage of this process is around 30%. If the monitor is displaying a static image, the CPU usage of the process is around 3%.
I tried uninstalling the DisplayLink driver, at which point the process used 0% (so I know it’s the driver causing the problem). Upon reinstalling, the problem came back.
Any idea how to fix this? Thanks in advance.
