A Little Issue when Installing Spotify

Lately, when I was booting up to Windows, Spotify just got installed and a quite serious damage got occurred. I installed it as Groove Music suggested me to do so when I opened it and found some new changes, since Microsoft would stop their music streaming service by the end of this year.

While I was streaming to a podcast, suddenly the Windows hanged. I was not so sure that Spotify was the cause, instead, I suspected some kind of bad sectors might have been infected my HDD. So, I had to hard shut it down by pressing power button, then. And when booting again, the Windows took more time than usual to load up. It made me more sure to believe at the bad sector.

Then I tried streaming again, and the Windows got frozen as well.

To make me more sure that Spotify caused the system to freeze, I installed it on Fedora. And yes, it caused Fedora to freeze, too!

I’m not alone in this situation. Some people find solution for this issue, but I’m not sure if it works for me too.

I don’t know what’s actually happening. But, it just quite disappointing, even though, actually I wanted to try their premium subscription, even just for the first 3 months.
