My Question or Issue
Recently, this issue started occuring quite frequently; but, it began about a week to two weeks ago. Spotify will hang for no apparent reason for minutes, hours, and more until I close it. Then, I can't restart the application because, when I do, I receive a popup warning that says "The Spotify application is not responding," and then the program quits. Also, I can't go into task manager to kill the process because it's a zombie and doesn't respond to any kill/force quit signals.
The only solution(as far as I know) to this problem is to restart my PC. Going through a whole restart requires closing all of my work, trying to finish doing as much as I can, etc. and is just in general a tedious, annoying process. It's especially annoying because I know that a few hours after rebooting my PC and starting Spotify, the same issue will happen again.
I haven't seen any topics about this issue directly that have been recent enough to be of any substance; however, I hope this issue is resolved. I've been a customer for years and this is the first time I've experienced a problem that almost entirely ruins the Spotify application for me.
