Unable to Sign in - Black Window

New member | Level 2

I removed a machine from our domain and attempted to re-install Dropbox.  The application appears to install successfully and the icon shows up in the system tray, but then I click on the link to sign in, the dropbox window opens and is just black.  Waited for it to load??  no change.  R&R application with the offline installer.  rebooted several times. disabled windows firewall.  disabled AV.  


Anyone know what could be causing this?
