How can I change my syncing settings to online only?

I pick the local setting in the dropbox and I was wondering if you can change that to online because I am getting my computer worked on?

Go into Dropbox Preferences and change the Smart Sync setting from Local to Online-only. Then, highlight all of the files and folders in your Dropbox folder, right-click them and select Online-only under Smart Sync. Allow it plenty of time to sync.
