How did you uninstall dropbox the first time? Seems like it didn't work - you can find the instructions for uninstalling for windows here: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/41

you can also disable the app from running if you a windows computer. from windows 7 you type  msconfig in the search box and disable it from the startup programs. Windows 10 you open up task manager, select startup and disable it from there too.
