It started as me realizing that spotify was opening on the startup of my computer for no apparent reason mainly as i never truly had an interest in spotify and never downloaded it or created an account for it.
Earlier today i kind of got tired of having to close it everytime and decided to uninstall it, which i wasnt able to to. The official file that task manager would bring me to from spotify was located in windows app and apparently i needed a SYSTEM autorisation to access such a file. So i guessed that maybe spotify was included in windows 10 and i simply never realized it cause im dumb. ( keep in mind that for all i know, i could have downloaded it while being drunk one night and thats that )
I then went to my next solution that was control pannel. Via there you can uninstall most application and thought it would be an easy fix for my issue. Apparently not as spotify wasnt listed as an application that was on my computer. ( weird enough )
I then saw online that i could simply uninstall it from the app itself so i rebooted my computer and tried to create an account for it ( as i dont remember ever doing so in the past ) but when i entered my mail it said that an account was already existing under that mail. After a quick password reset for that weird ghost account i simply deleted the account and created a new one i felt safer using. ( as i knew what or who created it )
Now that i created a new account and changed it so that spotify wont open on startup i still wonder how the **bleep** do i uninstall it ? its not something i plan to use at all and i dont even know why its on my computer to start with. The only place i saw it listen as downloaded on my account was in the Microsoft store which simply said that it was currently downloaded but didnt offer an option to uninstall ( or i simply dont know how to do it )
In the end, im stuck with this spotify that i cant uninstall from anywhere and that isnt listed as an application on my computer in control pannel.
Please help me, this is genuily scaring me.
