Dropbox killing internet connection

Dropbox killing internet connection

Helpful | Level 5
I moved my PC onto a new network. Dropbox was killing my internet connection so I played with limiting the upload download speeds and it seemed to work fine. Now after a win10 update it refuses to work without killing my network connection. I've tried resetting network settings, reinstalling Dropbox, updating network drivers. I kinda need this to work to do my job on Monday morning :'(

I tried a reinstall, and the internet was still dropping out afterwards. I also tried restoring windows to a previous version before the update to Windows 10, verison 1709. So now I am on Win10 v1703 and everything seems back to normal... Now I just need to avoid hitting the "Shutdown and restart" button xD

Yay windows...

Dropbox messed up my Internet connection

My Internet speed went to virtually dead.  I worked with my Internet provider.  They sent a new modem.  Then got a new router.  Then reset Windows - the Internet came back alive.  I loaded all my software and it went dead again.  The IT guy said - get a new computer.  Got a new computer and the DSL speed was 20.  I loaded software and it crashed again.  I assumed it was Norton and deleted it.  Still bad.  I finally uninstalled Dropbox and now I'm flying again.  Dropbox cost me hundreds!  Not happy.  Refund would be a start...
