I have three computers running Windows 7. The latest update has all of them crashing with the latest update of Dropbox. Dropbox is causing the computers to run so slowly that I have to update at night right now.
Whatever you are doing in your updates, it is not helping.
Sorry to hear about this. Of course, this should not be happening, so let’s have a look…
Is our app freezing up, or is it closing?
Has there been any other change to your systems recently? Any other apps added or updated?
Has there perhaps a Windows Update around the time this started happening?
Are you running an anti-virus? If so, which one are you using?
I’m running Windows 7 myself, and I haven’t had any issues with our latest app, 50.4.71. I use Avast’s free offering, and run a backup utility in the background. I’ll admit, I don’t have the latest Windows updates installed, as I like to make sure they’re not going to cause any issues when downloaded.
I am having much the same problems. I had some issues last week, but they seemed to clear up. This week, they have come back, and I can't get Dropbox to work on my machine at all. So I will answer the questions you have put above and we will see where we wind up
The dropbox app completely freezes the whole machine. I can't even open the task manager to kill the process and have to use the power button on the machine to stop it and then restart it.
The last thing I added was FEMAP, but this was added a couple of weeks ago. Windows had an update (KB4344152) and Adobe reader was updated about the same time
So it has been a while since the last Windows update
