Dropbox setting itself to run on start up.

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I sent an email in regards to Dopbox behving like a PUP. I keep disabling it onstartup and it keeps reinserting itself, which is the same behaviour as a PUP. 

I was advised to just "update the software". No this has not fixed it, it keeps doing it. If there is no fix for this I will be removing the software, permanantly. Has anyone else had this issue?

I dont believe there is a way to stop it doing this. Every time it updates I'm pretty sure it resets itself to start up automatically.
