Spotify won't install on my computer

Tech support sent me a message saying to update my  OS, i've done that, then I uninstalled, restarted and reinstalled spotify and it does the same thing.  It doesn't do anything, it uses up 25% of the cpu, when I click on it  its says"Spotify is already running..." This is has been very frustrating.

Re: Spotify won't install on my computer



It sounds like it wasn't totally removed from your computer. Did you restart your computer after uninstalling the software? There's also a pretty good guide on how to totally uninstall an application on a Mac here:
