windows 7 freezes when I open spotify & excel

Ultimate Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit

Specs: Windows 7, 2,67GHz/3,43GB
I have noticed this weird thing with my new Dell laptop. I have windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and I am using MS Office 2007. Every time I am listening Spotify (Free) and open an excel file my windows crashes. It freezes completely and I have no other choice but to shut it down using the power button.
I don't have any clue how to fix this. I would really appreciate some help.

I do not know much about this Spotify, but did you make sure you have a version compatible with Windows 7? Try uninstalling and downloading a new copy.
Try opening Excel with other programs running and see if you have a problem with other combinations. Try a program like SpeedFan to check your temperatures, laptops often have heat related problems, especially if not used on a hard surface (blocked vents).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
