My Question or Issue

I have a company provided computer which means i am not admin. To install Spotify you don't have to be admin. So downloaded and installed it.

After running the software i could not get it up and running because we are behind a company proxy.

So i tried uninstalling the software. But no you have to be Admin to uninstall the software. Which means i can not uninstall the program now.

 

On top of that, everytime i run the sowftware it autostarts. But since i can't either uninstall it or get in to the preferences (can't login because behind a proxy) im now at a catch 22.

How do i solve this with the need to go the company IT guys?

Hey @Toerktumlare 

 

Another way to disable autostart is by using Task Manager, if that's possible for non-admins.

Search for Task Manager, go to Startup tab, search for Spotify in the list, right-click on it, select "Disable".

 

If that doesn't do the trick either, then you'll need IT help at this point.

 

If you wish to use Spotify, you can try the web player.

 

Have a nice day!
