Why is DBXsvc still running after uninstall of the program

"I like to reserve my accusations for ones I can prove malice"

 

You aren't really putting the two and two togethor. Blindingly trusting DropBox in light of evidence to the contrary, and before real malice rears its head, seems like a mistake.

 

 

If the "issue" still exists (which I bet it does after all this time) then it is clearly malice.

One of the main arguments against Ms. Rice is based on a 2005 television interview in which she defended the N.S.A.’s warrantless surveillance program.

and curiously enough, the DbxSvc actually managed to reappear on my Windows 10 Pro (non-neutered) PC.

 

..wtf..

 

would suggest to anyone that has removed it, to dbl-check and see if it magically reappeared.

agreed. I uninstalled Dropbox months ago and jsut today see this process. Yea it's easy enough to remove after googling and spending about 5 mintues researching but that shouldn't have to be done. Lots of people I"m sure have no idea this service is running on their machine without their knowledge.

 

I just am bvisitng this  in Feb 2018 I see the post is from a copule years ago so it is still happening. Just another reason I don't use Dropbox and instead use OneDrive and Google Drive
