For the last few weeks, I keep receiving a Pop-Up Message in the bottom right-corner of my Windows 7 machine to Upgrade, when I first turn on my computer, since I have run out of storage. I do not want to upgrade at this time and want to disable this message. I know that I have to Upgrade eventually, so I don't need to be notified every time on turn on my computer. I have checked the Preferences in the General section, and there's no option to disable notiications. Please help!
Only options in the General section to check or uncheck , is System "Start DropBox on System Start-up", Notify Me About "Comments, Shares, or @mentions" and "Synced Files" , then Dropbox Badges.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hope you have a great week ahead, please let me further clarify!
As I had mentioned above, this workaround may help users prevent this notification from popping up in some cases, though if this doesn't apply in your device and your account is well under quota, to further assist please , so that we focus on that specific example. Once you write in to us, please let me know in your reply here, so that I look for your ticket internally.
Please Accept as Solution if this post answers your question!
Kudos are always appreciated!!
So... drop box has taken to spamming Win7 users with a pop up ad that steals focus from other windows, sitting on top of whatever the user is actually trying to work on, and left no way to opt out? Right then, time to delete drop box, it's outlived it's usefulness...
And do I really need to say how wrong "That notification cannot be disabled" is from a design perspective? So dropbox feels they can control the behavior of my machine? Not control their own app on my machine, but control the way OTHER apps dispaly on my machine, but covering them with a [profanity removed] ad?
Any other program that did this would be called malicious... A virus. But dropbox thinks it's a-ok to do?
And yes, I asked this of support. My first ticket they sent an automated response that had nothing to do with the question and closed the ticket. My follwup they sent a set of procedures that reference clicking on options that don't actually exist in their own preference screen. I responded to that with screen shots asking them to clarify, but 6 days in now with no simple answer means I'm not holding my breath.
First, please refrain from using that kind of language on this public forum. Continuing to do so could see your posts removed or your forum account suspended. Thank you. Your post has been edited.

They're not controlling your computer's behavior. They're controlling their own application. It's the application that is presenting the window, not your operating system. It's simply coming to the forground, just like so many other applications when they present a dialog while the application is not in focus. It's nothing new, and certainly not malicious.
If anyone has a problem with how a dialog is presented in a program, then they should blame Microsoft/Apple for allowing applications to take focus when out of focus.
Are you clueless why someone doesn't want repetitive pop up notifications every time they turn on their computer? Seems pretty straightforward to me.
Don't just say, "why?"
