Spotify keep crashing and can't uninstall

Newbie

As mentioned above, my Spotify keep crashing after a couple minutes after being opened and I can't uninstall it.

 

I went to Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features and tried to uninstall Spotify, but it said "the uninstaller failed start".

 

Anyone has this kind of problem? 

I am using Windows 7 64bit.

Hi there,

i am afraid to say that this issue may be due to a bug or an issue with the software and/or the computer. If uninstalling seems impossible then you may need to download a brute force uninstaller tool to remove the program from the registry and untimately from your computer system.

 

Persoanally i would reccomend using IOBit Uninstaller for this as it is free and quick.

after using the program to uninstall spotify you may need to restart your PC however your computer should be removed of the program. After the uninstall of the spotify you may want to reinstall a fresh copy of spotify as the past issue is more likely to be because of a bug and to do this just download spotify from the origional link.

the solution seems long and hard however i hope it has helped!.

Don't hesitate to message me if the problem persists.

Thank you

@gregoriusrnaldo hey there greg,

 

first i'd try restarting your desktop,

 

if that doesn't work, try in safe mode.

 

let me know how that goes!

So happy this finally worked, since I could never get Spotify to work or to uninstall the usual way. Thank you!

Same problem here. More than a year later. So I have to install another program to uninstall this one? That's some malware-grade bull**bleep**.
