The Dropbox app is not starting with the computer, and when I double-click the icon in the Start menu nothing seems to happen. Checking with Task Manager, three processes do open, only to then close one after the other. Have tried uninstalling, but it fails. Restarting the computer has made no difference, and it is still listed in Startup Apps, and checked as 'on'.
It did occur to me my security software, Avast, might be interfering, not least since I had very similar issues with OpenOffice a short while ago that proved to be caused by the increasingly overzealous Avast blocking it. Even after turning off the latter, though, Dropbox still won't load. All suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the advanced reinstall instructions. Unfortunately after following it i still have the same issues.
Task manager is showing the following.
I currently only have 1 device shown in the devices list under security.
