Hi there @bruce7
 
If you’re trying to uninstall the desktop app, have you tried following the steps outlined here
 
If you’re still having trouble with this, could you send me a screenshot (without personal info included) of the error message that pops up? 
 
Let me know how it goes!

Also, if you're on Windows, make sure you close the application by clicking on its icon in the system tray (next to the clock on the taskbar), then going to the settings and clicking "Exit Dropbox".
