This does blow - I did a search and whew there have been some interesting threads about "pops, crackles, spikes. etc." - iirc there were ideas such as "turning indexing off" , "graphic card interference" "amd processor support" and more. Never really came across a certain "fix"
As it was working fine, the big question would be "what changed?" (the UX1 or your PC).
I would try the UX1 on a different pc just to narrow the field down a bit - if it checks out good - head back to the laptop and check the input and output settings (DAW, Farm, Windows internal volume settings for out) PF is working its just the signal into the DAW.
After that I venture into the land of guesswork
-Run a virus trojan/adware scan - can't hurt anyway.
-Try the laptop in a different room on battery only - who knows
- The unistall/reinstall shuffle.
Wish I could be more help.
