comment Problem With insmod command for driver installation
Obviously the driver is still loaded when you are making the attempt. Try unloading the drivers being used to service the adapter and then try to load it? Have you tried a reboot after loading the driver?

Sounds like you simply want to stop dropbox from running. Why not just change the permissions on the binary so that it is not executable?
