My Question or Issue

I have spent a lot of time trying to figure this out on my own.  I am NOT very "computer-wise" so it's been a challenge.  Spotify has been crashing within 2-3 seconds every time I open it.  I uninstalled and reinstalled it countless times, all with different variations of restarted the computer inbetween each step.  Then I saw the advice to do a "clean reinstall".  I was fine with trying that, but once I got to the %appdata% and local files and I was supposed to delete all Spotify files, there were none.  Nothing.  No sign of Spotify anywhere.  I've reinstalled Spotify twice this way, and there are NEVER any files in %appdata or local" and it closes in seconds after opening every time still.  Again, I know nothing about computers, but that seems like a problem?!!??  Any suggestions?

Hello @adavy .

There have been many reports of the desktop app crashing and it seems related to the latest Windows update.

It is now an Ongoing Issue meaning it's being  looked into.

I do apologize  for the inconvenience.
