New member | Level 1

Hi.

I've two PC's, a desktop with dropbox 3.4.4 and a laptop with 3.4.3.
They are both with autostart option enabled but in both cases the autostart it's not working since a week ago.
On the laptop i can start the program if i run it as admin.
On the desktop i tried to unninstall and install again but the program it's not installing correctly. It only install if run the installer as admin.

How do i solve this problems?

I would test if the problem is machine wide or account wide as a first step.
Generate a new admin level account, and see if it installs correctly and runs, if so you have messed somehow with the user rights of the other accounts.

Hi Dave! Thanks for your help.
I know how to do it. Both PC's are admins accounts in windows.
Since a week ago both stop starting automatically. There was no major changes in terms of software installed/updated on both PC's.
I just want it to work as always worked.
