When i try to open spotify nothing at all happens. Spotify shows in task manager, tried exiting from there and reopening without success. Tried to uninstall spotify but when i try to nothing happens, and if i try once again i get error that current uninstall process needs to finish before uninstalling. The app works on my phone but not on my PC.         I have win7.

It is mentioned to delete the Spotify folder and other folders that Spotify uses if uninstalling is not possible. Have you tried that also?
