dropbox will not start in windows 10

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I just noticed today that my dropbox is not syncing.  In fact, the icon isn't even showing.  I tried opening the program manually and all it did was open the folder.

I uninstalled, restarted, and then reinstalled.  It never shows up again in the tray.  I look in task manager and it is running, but nothing is happening.  I have uninstalled the latest windows update.

Any help would be great!  It is still working on my other computers.

Hey there @Ben-sv - sorry to hear that!

Could you give our latest version's offline installer a go and let me know if it helped? If it doesn't, you could also try an advanced re-install to see if this will tackle the issue you're experiencing. 

In either case, please keep me posted.
