Hey there @twopshowgirl,

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this here in the Community. 

 

You mentioned that you've already reinstalled the app, but would you mind going through the steps of a clean reinstall, as it's more thorough than a normal one?

 

If this doesn't do the trick, we suggest that you check your firewall and antivirus software to make sure Spotify is whitelisted or set as an exception.

 

Lastly, we'd recommend uninstalling any ad-blocker apps.

 

Keep us posted on how it goes.

the other things you said, the pc app is terrible, always has been, its
really annoying...

Hi there @twopshowgirl,

 

Thank you for your reply and for the troubleshooting you've done so far.

 

Can you try the following:

  • Check your firewall and antivirus software/apps to make sure Spotify is whitelisted or set as an exception.
  • Remove ALL entries from the Windows hosts file (not just the Spotify ones).
  • Uninstall any ad-blocker apps.

We'll keep an eye out for your reply 🙂

Cheers!
