The latest DropBox update is causing Windows Explorer (Windows 10) to start slow and hang intermittently. When I start Explorer, it shows, "Working on it..." and eventually I can navigate folders. After a few clicks, it hangs again. Task manager shows "Not Responding" during these periods. Event Viewer is not showing any errors.
Yes, I am also getting this as of 3.14.5.
Disabling the two shell extensions does not fix - needs a full uninstall.
Have uninstalled as no functionality works - include "save as" in all other programs.
I'm downloading the 3.12.6 offline installer right now. I'll let you know if this fixes the problem. Hopefully, it will because I use Dropbox for two businesses, as well. If I can't get my personal account working, I'm going to have to switch everything to Google Drive or One Drive.
I just installed 3.12.6. You can download it at https://www.dropboxforum.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/203932093-Stable-Build-3-12-6.
I renamed DropboxUpdate.exe to DropboxUpdate.exe.DO_NOT_RUN in an attempt to keep DB from updating. However, I have read this will ultimately cause Dropbox from syncing correctly. We'll see. May have to come up with another solution to keep it from updating (hopefully, Dropbox will come up with an actual fix).
