Microsoft Telemetry Compatibility

When I start Xbox on my laptop the whole thing slows to a crawl.  Task Manager reveals it is largely due to Microsoft Telemetry Compatibility hogging most of the CPU.  This goes on for several minutes and recurs often.  I don't especially mind Microsoft collecting info on my usage, but I would like it to be done in a way that does not impact the performance of my computer.  What can I do?
