Apps and Installations

In Event Manager, every second it shows " Failed to connect to the driver: -2147024894, retrying in 1000 milliseconds¨ ID:320 (DbxSvc).
Is there an update error or something else? Thank you!
I noticed my computer was lagging very bad. So after a little bit I checked out computer management > windows logs > application.
In there I see the dropbox "dbxSvc" service creating multiple error logs per second. All giving the below error. As soon as I shut down the service, my computer is no longer laggy. Does anyone know why this is happening? I had this error a couple weeks back when I was on the beta, and have since switched to stable and still get the error.
"Failed to connect to the driver: -2147024894, retrying in 1000 milliseconds"
Every second in the Application Log on Windows 10, I see:
Event ID: 320
Failed to connect to the driver: -2147024894, retrying in 1000 milliseconds
I see a reference to this SAME error from a Windows 7 user (from who knows how long ago) and it STILL isn't fixed. Really?! This is ridiculous.
Apparently, filling up the Application Log is of no concern to Dropbox so I guess I'll uninstall it and go without the desktop app.
I'll also instruct my people to remove it from all clients in the Houston area because the desktop app is broken. I can't have everyone's logs filling up with nonsense. They'll just have to use the web interface.
