same prob here, X-Fi Titanium Fatality Champion Pro Series Sound Card. All music plays ok with other software, but not with Spotify :-( Minimizing the Spotify window suppresses the crackle. Seems to be linked to buffering / CPU priorities?

C'mon, Spotify - pls react to this massive issue for sooo many of  us users finally. Otherwise will cancel my Premium membership, there are alternatives out there...

(99% dissatisfied with SF service :-()

WTH?? After posting this message, a new Spotify update auto-installed on my computer. After updating, bug is gone!!! :-) No idea what exactly the fix is, but can now minimize SF window without any crackle / noise!

No such luck here. Still hear the scratching noises on Spotify desktop app but not on Chrome and I never got an update, not sure how or why you did.

Unfortunately Spotify will keep updating itself on every computer restart.

I haven't found a way to block it doing that... yet.

Try making the "spotify.exe" and "spotifylauncher" read-only to. In the folder specified in your post.

Seems to have stop mine from autoupdate for now atleast.
