Why does Dropbox take so long to uninstall?

Why does Dropbox take so long to uninstall?

Hi,

Our office dropbox ceased working two days ago. We're trying to uninstall the program and so far it's taken about 2 hours. Is this usual?

Sorry to hear about this @Charles F.14 & @Bluebean.

If you're still encountering this issue, please reboot the affected computer and try uninstalling our software anew.

Should the matter persist, forward us a screenshot of the last screen you manage to get during the uninstalling process so we can have a visual too.

Thanking you in advance and welcome to the Dropbox Community!
