How can I actually get rid of Dropbox on my laptop?

How can I actually get rid of Dropbox on my laptop?

Hello,

I spent the last few hours trying to uninstall Dropbox - however, whenever I reboot the laptop, a new Dropbox folder is created under the user file path (if deleted previously) - it's super annoying as I can't even access my actual Desktop anymore, just the Dropbox desktop, which I don't want to use anymore.
I checked the taskmanager and my MsInfo and couldn't find any traces of Dropbox - is there a way to finally get rid of this without resetting the entire laptop?

(Deleting my account didn't help either)

Hey @Nevina,I'd be more than happy to help!

When you uninstall the Dropbox desktop application, that won't delete your content. You'd need to manually delete the Dropbox folder on your end. 

Did you try deleting it, and had any issues with this? 

Let me know what you find.
