I cannot use Spotify honestly on my PC because it consumes far too much CPU power. When playing music the task managers shows a CPU load of more than 50%, but I still need my PC for working in parallel, taking that much ressources is not acceptable. My system: Windows 7 32bit, AMD dual core, 3,25GB RAM, SSD. It's the same situation running the Spotify application 0.9.6.81 or using the web front-end in the Chrome browser. When I start the application the CPU load remains low, starting playback increases CPU load to 55%, when pausing music still the same CPU load of 55%, finally when ending the Spotify application CPU load returns to 0.
I hope very much that you will provide a solution for this critical issue, I love the Spotify features, but I will quit my membership if this problem can't be solved.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I could solve the problem, the problems began after a windows update. After restoring a backup the problems vanished. Also after installing windows updates again the problems did not reappear. No idea which update has led to the problem.
