I have the same issue - running Windows 10 signed on with a Microsoft Azure AD account rather than a local windows account. This has been working for 12 months with no problems - error just started after no known change on the desktop. I can't even uninstall the service. I checked the permissions as referenced in the error and all are correct. I re-added anyway and applied permissions throughout the Temp Folder - still broken.

I have the same error when I try to install Dropbox on my Dell laptop with Win 10 now. I uninstalled Dropbox initially with the hope that after reinstalling it will work again. Dropbox stopped working normally a couple of weeks ago. I did not follow it very closely, but I would get notifications that Dropbox failed to start, and something about the folder being in a shared directory.

I had a feeling I provoked the problem because when this started I was trying to install some app on my Android phone to be able to control the laptop via wifi. So I tried several apps rom the Android store that asked to install different remote server applications (at least 3) on the laptop. I ended up uninstalling all of them (conventionally through remove apps), but maybe some changes remained? Maybe it is not related, but does not hurt to mention, right..

I tried our all the official "Dropbox fails to install" recipies, but they don't seem to help on this.
