Get this app off my computer

Get this app off my computer

I bought this PC second hand. I dont know what Dropbox is and I dont use it. It was already installed on this PC and I cannot uninstall it. It doesn't even give me a prompt or anything. I click Uninstall and NOTHING happens. This app constantly uses between 20-30% of my CPU at all times and nothing I do seems to have any effect on it. I cannot contact customer support because I am not a paying customer, nor the holder of the account of whoever downloaded this app on my PC before I bought it. How do I get this app off my computer?

FINALLY

I have solved it on my own. I simply needed to open task manager and end all dropbox processes BEFORE attempting to Uninstall, as that was causing the prompt saying the file was open in Dropbox.

This action cannot be completed because the file is open in Dropbox.

I have tried all methods of Uninstalling and NOTHING works.
