After I updated to the latest version of Windows 10, namely the creators update, the spotify desktop app completely freezes my PC while playing music (seemigly at random). It makes weird static noises and then everything freezes and I have to hit the reset button. I tried the following:
I tried checking the Event log, but except the messages for me restarting the computer, nothing shows up. For now I'm using the web player, but I'd rather use the app. Can anyone help?
Solved! Go to Solution.
My Spotify program would freeze my computer after I opened the program. About 10s after opening the program, it would freeze my computer as it tried to load the Browse page.
I have however found a solution to my problem, which is using the app and not program. This is what occurred as I tried to find a solution to my problem:
After that was done I had no problems again. Spotify is working as it should without freezing my computer and so far I have found that the app works a lil faster than the program did
This new Windows Creators Update fully solved for me. I updated day 11/01/2017 and until now no more problems.
It's called W10 Fall Creators Update. It's the version 1709.
Just update it normaly using Windows Update. Give a try.
The Fall Update actually fixed it. Or Spotify fixed the app and decided not to tell anyone. Either way: darn! it finally works!!
