This is in reference to the above thread that seems to have been resolved for most people on that thread about a month ago.

I am still having this issue, with Windows 10 and a surfacebook 2. I've tried uninstalling, rebooting, just restarting dropbox, unlinking, checking for windows updates. It still is stuck on "starting..."

Re: Stuck on starting

Temporarily disable any antivirus or firewall software and try again. Also, check the Proxy setting in Dropbox Preferences and ensure that it's set to No Proxy.

Re: Stuck on starting

I have no firewalls or antivirus outside of windows default settings, and no proxy.

Should I disable windows firewall and antivirus also? This is a brand new laptop, so there shouldn't be anything odd. I set everything to be "on the cloud" instead of local trying to get it to hopefully start and sync.
