I just read through ten pages of this thread in the hope of a resolution. FWIW, I'm experiencing the same issue (Windows 10 Pro, Dropbox Pro).

Hi Mark,

 

Unfortunately the resolution is out of the user's hands but we are told that the Dropbox development team are working to find a solution.  Fortunately, at least formost of us, we are still able to use Dropbox as normal.
