    It turns out that during the 3 weeks or so that I've had the app, they've upgraded from 2.0.9 to 2.0.10. I guess, even though I'm paying for it, there's no automatic check for updates like there is with some fee software I have. (Another good place for a "sigh" smiley which I suggested earlier.)

    So all is well now?

    I don't know yet. Sometimes there are 3 or 4 shutdowns and power-ups between incidents, so it's going to be a while before I know.

    Do you experience the same thing if you log off, log on?
    I'm thinking perhaps there's some sort of conflict between the state of your PC (software/hardware/settings.. whatever) that prevents Pandora launching, and restarting clears that conflict.

    Basically it could be an app hang situation.
    So you'd need to use the event viewer and see what you can find.

    You could also try (as a first pass) Nirsoft's Appcrashview and Whatishang
    Get information about Windows software that stopped responding/freezing (hang)

    I never thought of logging off and logging back on, but I'll try it and look into the other things.

    Logging out and logging back in doesn't help.


    In Event Viewer, I didn't find anything useful except a message about finding more information in Control Panel. There I discovered that, in addition to Pandora hanging, Microsoft.Messaging_8wekyb3d8bbwe!ppleae38af2e007f4358a809ac99a64a67c1 stops working a lot. Also, Control Panel has a graph which shows that since the 1511 update, my system's stability peaked at 3 or 4 out of 10. Since, the two logs are about 40 lines long I thought I'd check before uploading them.

    I tried clicking "Check for a solution", and it just says "No new solutions found."

    (Also, I was wrong about Pandora not automatically updating itself. Control Panel shows 4 unsuccessful attempts.)

    Curious, but why are using the desktop program (I presume it is the Pandora One program)? Have you looked at the troubleshooting steps at http://help.pandora.com/customer/en/...ne-desktop-app ? There is a Windows Store app (published by Pandora itself) plus Pandora works fine in a browser too (for which you could create a shortcut to launch).

    I use the app because it's more convenient than the website, and it worked fine before the 1511 update. I'll look into the other things you suggested, and, I guess, I should post in a different thread to try to get the other issues resolved.

    Resetting Windows yesterday seems to have helped. I'm not sure how much yet.
