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?

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.
