Spontaneous launch

Spontaneous launch

Hi guys,

Today was the second time my Dropbox Desktop App launched without any apparent reason. I wasn't using actively my laptop or touching it and the Dropbox app launched all of a sudden. Any idea what could cause this?

 

Background:

Windows 10, Ccleaner app disables Dropbox on launch. Plan Dropbox Plus - 2TB.
Usually when I use Dropbox: I need to mount my encrypted drive first to create the drive Dropbox is using. Then I launch the desktop app. When the drive is unmounted (because I forget to), I get a message on launch that the linked drive can't be found (Dropbox folder doesn't exist or something). The app then asks me to Unlink or Exit. 

 

Anyway, just now the app launched and told me he couldn't find the linked drive. What could cause the app to launch unprovoked? I wasn't working on my laptop. I only had a few Chrome tabs open with sites like Reddit, IMDB and maybe 1 or 2 news sites. I hadn't performed any action in at least 15-20 minutes. Suggestions welcome

Usually reinstalling Dropbox fixes similar issues. But have you checked if it has something to do with your firewall?
