Windows 'Install & Remove Programs' in the Control Panel should remove everything. All Spotify program files are confined to two folders, one in each of the two Application Data folders, that's it, other than Desktop and Program Files shortcuts, so check there.
Since you've done the uninstall, there must be something left in the registry as a Run command that is called on every startup. You should run Ccleaner's registry cleaner to remove these and other registry entries. Most programs leave registry entries on uninstall. Ccleaner will also show what is scheduled to run on startup.
If the uninstall was successful, even with leftover registry entries, I really doubt that the slowdown is related to Spotify
I have tried and tried to uninstall spotify on Windows 7-64 bit. When I go to control panel/programs/select spotify/Uninstall, I get a message "Invalid options: /uninstall". Since I have installed Spotify I cannot install any windows updates and I get a blue memory dump screen trying. Shutdown message: Windows unexpected shut down screen. ERROR: user\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-43165-0.sysdata.xml. Now the PC just restarts over and over again with a blue screen every 5 minutes. Still cannot uninstall spotify. Did get it removed out of my browser.
Please help me get this out of my PC!!
Re: How do I completely uninstall spotify? (web player firefox 20.0.1)
Great job dealing with this - it is getting confusing out there. Chrome keeps doing things to my Outlook hyperlinks in my email. I always suspect the browser install too and re-do that if nothing else to make sure I didn't miss a TRICKY checkoff box in Firefox, Chrome, IE, or whatever. Spotify has been a great product in my opinion, and is evolving like anything else to get better and bigger. Thanks support folks for hanging in there with us out here as we are often confused and a little too harsh with the people helping us :)
Click on your admin account, click on the padlock to make changes, click on login items, click on Spotify, click on the "-" (minus) button below to remove this from the list of apps that start up when you log into your Mac.
Click on your Desktop, click "Go" at the top of the screen, click on "Applications". Drag Spotify to the trash.
Scroll down to Utilities and double-click "Terminal".
Copy and paste the following, it will ask for your admin password:
"sudo rm -R Library/Caches/com.spotify.client" <- Press return & type in your admin password "sudo rm -R Library/Caches/ com.spotify.danstaller" <- Press return & type in your admin password
Should be all gone
There is a space in the command deleting the spotify cache directory. Be careful, between the containing folder and the spotify directory. Don't use it with the space if you don't want your whole cache directory wiped out.
