Title: Dropbox popup
Post by: jl747 on September 19, 2014, 07:20:30 PM
I just installed Avast 2015.10.0.220 and a popup about Dropbox showed up.
It said that Avast had detected Dropbox and that I was not using it.

I have not nor have I ever had Dropbox on my computer.

I did a scan for it and it is not anywhere on my computer. (Just in case there was a silent install.)

Is this some sort of advertising gimmick to push Dropbox on users?
It is not right to say something is there when it isn't.
