How to delete DBXsvc.exe service after uninstalling Dropbox

Welcome to Programming Tutorial official website. Today - we are going to cover how to solve / find the solution of this error How to delete DBXsvc.exe service after uninstalling Dropbox on this date .

After uninstalling Dropbox and rebooting my PC multiple times, I still see the service DBXsvc.exe running in Task Manager.

Why is this process still on my computer after uninstalling Dropbox, and how can I remove it?

Answer

You can remove a service registration from the service control manager database using the command line tool sc.exe.

In this case DBXsvc.exe is a Windows service called “dbxsvc”. To delete this service, in an administrative command prompt perform the following:

First, check if it is running:

sc query dbxsvc

If so, I would suggest stopping it before deleting it:

sc stop dbxsvc

You can then delete it:

sc delete dbxsvc

Clearly the uninstaller should remove services it installed but this approach can be used to clean up where needed.
