"Allow access to dropbox" window keeps popping up.

Explorer | Level 3

Seems the big mistake I made was to update dropbox.  The installation is succesful and compleate but the window "allow acess to dropbox" pops up every 5 min and clicking on allow does not stop it. Is this a Windows 10 issue or dropbox?

Hello @Kdf7651 - welcome to our Community!

I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with this. Could you try to re-install our desktop application using the most recent version's offline installer found in the link below and let me know if you're still getting this error message?

If this error is persistent, please forward me a screenshot so I can have a further look.

Thanks in advance!

PS: I'd suggest also making sure that you're installing it using admin rights on your computer.
