Can't play anything

Some time ago, i couldn't play new songs anymore, i had to do a clean reinstall if i wanted my playlists to update. So, i did it again today, but this time after doing it, i can't play anything on my pc. All my playlists are seen as empty, and if i try to play something from the Daily Mix playlists, the bar just shows the artist and the heart button, but no song name or picture, and it wont play. I have now tried disabling hardware acceleration, some other settings, done multiple clean reinstalls and i also tried to only clear the cache. So, long story short, i cant play anything and the only playlists that have songs in them are Daily Mixes and Weekly Recommendations. Even the Official playlists are empty.

 

This problem is occuring on my Pc with Windows 10 Pro

Hardware: I5-2400, GTX 1060 6GB, 10GB DDR3

I live in Finland, and my account is a free account.

Clearing any spotify entries from the "host" file from System32/drivers/etc worked!

you have to go in 

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

so COPY the file "host" on you're desktop and open that file with notepad

and so delete all that has to do with spotify.

save and copy that file in the same folder with the option "copy and replace"
