Regular Software Crashes

Hi - I wonder can you help please. Over the last few days the software has simply been crashing very frequently. To the point where I can hardly play even a single song. I am mostly playing from Tidal. My phone plays OK but this software crashes and then I get the donut of death for a while. Windows is up to date. Laptop seems fine otherwise. Thank you.
