GoProPushNotificationService.exe consumes all of tcp/ip resources

My system is a Windows 10 x64 PC with 16GB ram and a few Terabytes of drive space.  

 

Recently, i've been having an issue where leaving GoPro Quik open for a day or so results in GoProPushNotification.exe consuming all the tcp/ip ports on my system.  the .exe is creating connections to itself via loopback.  Once all tcpip ports are exhausted, I am no longer able to browse the internet, as GoProPushNotification.exe has effectively DoS'd me and consumed all tcpip resources.

 

Windows Event log shows an event 4227

 

running netstat -anb to identify the executable responsible shows thousands of lines similiar to below:

[GoProPushNotificationService.exe]
TCP 127.0.0.1:49154 127.0.0.1:49165 ESTABLISHED
[GoProPushNotificationService.exe]

 

Given this info, killing the task results in me immediately being able to resume connectivity.  I have had this issue on numerous occassions and it is a pain.
