Recently I noticed I couldn't compile my game in Game Maker:Studio and my Dropbox files were not getting synced.
I discovered that my Temp folder was disappearing - Creating a new Temp folder fixes the problem for just few minutes.

No wish to alarm, but you may have read that recently, dropbox has been heavily hacked and access gained to many users. It could be possible that you have picked up a Trojan.

I would suggest, in the first instance, that you run a complete scan with the free Malwarebytes:

Ok. The leak I am referring to, occurred a couple of weeks ago, but, if it is offline on your computer no prob.
