Specs: Windows 7, 4GB
RE: dropbox > possible hacking / privacy issues: why does my dropbox account security section say that my pc's last access to dropbox was 5 months ago....since I've accessed it 50 times since 5 months ago?

You did not even attempt to answer my question in plain English. Is the question so difficult? I am asking why does my acct. info tell me that my pc last accessed dropbox 5 months ago--when I know I've accessed it dozens of times in July, August, Sept. Oct. and this month as well. JUST WRITE OUT AN ANSWER IF YOU KNOW WHY--DON'T JUST TELL ME TO DOWNLOAD SOMETHING I'VE NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE. Thank you.

Well no one here (and elsewhere) are capable of using crystal ball to give you a foolproof solution to your problem. Try follow JohnW suggestions to get to find out.

If you know you have been there more often and more recently than dropbox security states, and you're naturally concerned as to why "their" records differ from your own knowledge..., (and this concern is reflected in your initial post...; and clearly emphasied in your sibsequent #2) then would it not be wise to run some form of check for possible hacking/intrusion etc.?

It may simply that "their" security logging isn't up to par, and thus their current records are way out of date?

Who knows?

Short of addressing dropbox support directly... (is that viable/possible?) JohnW's suggestion would seem worth of a try!

As per XpUser... none of us have crystal balls (nor direct access to dropbox or your account); so how can we or anyone else say yes or no - re' have you been hacked.

As regards being asked/advised to download/run one or two utilites... If you were regularly across this forum you would likely have noted that the utilities suggested are regularly applied, when dealing with possible viruses, malware, hacking etc.. All safe and free to apply - otherwise they wouldn't be suggested!

Also Johnw is well versed in "pest control, hacking attacks etc., as is XpUser - and several others here (not responding just now to your post).

Did you perhaps do a system restore that reverted it to a different time thus wiping out the record of logins?

Has the calender date showing in windows been changed?
