Dropbox question

Hi, I just gave one of my laptops to my son and it has a Dropbox account set up on it.  He want's to set up his own Dropbox account.  I tried doing that for him but when I go to Dropbox on the internet, it brings up a page with all of my stuff and doesn't give me a chance to create a different account.  I deleted the Dropbox program and I set him up as Administrator but my name and/or account is still connected to Dropbox somehow.

How can I disconnect my account ONLY ON THIS COMPUTER, so that I can create a new one?

You need to unlink it from that computer. There are two ways: on the computer, and on the website. I prefer the latter.

See https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/25 for more details.

Thanks for the link, but so far no help. You know, I remember seeing this box on my computer at one time but I have since uninstalled Dropbox and I can't re-install it because it immediately shows what is in my Dropbox.  I tried going to the Dropbox website to see if I could find a way to unlink the computer but so far haven't been successful.  Wish they wouldn't make it so har
