My Question or Issue

 I upgraded a weekago. been trying to listen to some my bands radios and they refuse to play. I've rebooted, logged out and few other things. Nothing gotten the radio stations to work. Also, Friends list has disappeared. its saying it cant find my friends.

Error message for any radiostation: "This radio station can not be started"

Error message for the friendslist: "Hmm, friendfeed failed to load"

Hey @XristiEno

 

This is a weird issue and you're not the only one with this.
Fortunately there is a Solution - check out this thread. 🙂

 

Apparently there might be entries in hosts file that causes some Spotify traffic to be directed to void.

I don't know what and why causes this, but you can lock the file by navigating to it, right-clicking on it, going to Properties and making it a Read-Only file.
This should avoid it from being edited by anything.

 

Let me know how it goes. 🙂
