Hey @Thayer & @Duckuser, thanks for the nudge! 
 
Just as a point of reference, I’m also following this thread, where some of your fellow Community members have reported that they got a similar discrepancy fixed upon re-installing the latest desktop app using the Offline installer→ (Stable Build 83.4.152). 
 
Can you confirm that you’ve been working on this version, or update to see if this gets the issue sorted for you? 
 
If you’ve already tried that, could you let me know here, as we’ll need to further troubleshoot through ticket? 
 
Thanks again & I’ll be awaiting your next update!

Hi Jane, The current installed version is 83.4.152, I did not update it. It updated automattically. 

I tried downloading a new version from my online dashboard but once the installation completed the laptop crashed again.

Thanks for pinging me back here @Duckuser; I’ve just sent you a brief email, in order to investigate what's the culprit based on the info we can see on our tools. 

Please have a look at your inbox whenever you have some spare time!

@Jane Is there any update on a resolution to this issue at all?

Having the same issue on my Corporate laptop.

laptop reliably crashes as soon as dropbox connects.
only found out because other people in the organisation were having the same issues.

Originally I downloaded the latest version of Dropbox off the website.  
Then after finding this thread I downloaded the reccomended "stable" version (83.4.152) but still has the same issues.

Powershell tells me I am running windows version 10.0.17763

 

Edit:
Reading the other thread, looks like there is a high correlation with this issue and coprorate notebooks   
(I have a HP Elitebook)  

Peresonally I am running Mcafee antivirus which cannot be uninstalled or disabled.

I get a combination of KERNEL_MODE_HEAP_CORRUPTION
and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA errors

 

Keen for an update on this as dropbox is currently unusable

Hey @sncooper_work, @PeterDBU  & blueface123, thanks for reporting! 
 
I’d like to submit you reports to our higher-level technicians in form of a question. Would it be okay if I created a ticket on our system for each request separately? 
 
Please let me know if you have a bit of time to work on that with me. Thanks again!

Re: Blue Screen of Death on Win10

I noticed a new and improved (except it is not) Dropbox suddenly on my system, and it is actually a downgrade in terms of functionality for me. I need to extract myself from Dropbox. Any viable alternative? Should I just start learning to use Google Drive for my Dropbox needs? I have loved Dropbox, until now, sigh. The main thing is I have kept a few 7zip encrypted documents in Dropbox (password list, financial spreadsheet), and I would just click the Dropbox icon on my Windows 10 taskbar, choose the file, choose to open it with 7-zip but not Dropbox lost that ability, not it only has Open with 7-zip Console which does not work the way it should with my Dropbox encrypted files.
