Hi @lolan, could you forward a screenshot showing the Dropbox desktop application that is loading when you boot up your machine?

 

Is it possible that the Dropbox app is somehow stored in another location?

Hey @Lusil thanks for fast reply.
I cannot run step 8, because the Dropbox program doesn't exist in my Program folder:

It looks like now I'm stuck forever with Dropbox and it also starts when my copmputer starts. I want to optimize my machine, so I would like to remove it.

Hey. I don't know what happened but when I restarted it never appeared again and it's also gone from my top bar, so the problem is solved. Thank for working it out magically!! ❤️
