Website Blocked Pop up - 255.255.255.255

I'm getting a repeating popup saying "Website Blocked" that is pointing to Dropbox.exe. This just started today and I have not installed any new software. One of the popups, but just one, also said "achost" or something like that. All the rest say dropbox.exe about every 30 seconds. I'm running a Surface 4 with Windows 10 Pro. 

I see other posts about this subject, but they say the help is for that specific person so would someone please help me?

Thanks!

Same reason I'm here, the Website Blocked popup is jumping up and down like a jack russell terrier, telling me Dropbox is trying to use an outgoing connection at IP 255.255.255.255. I did try telling MB to check for updates. Log attached.

Edit: Thanks LMM, I should have thought to pause syncing to make the popup stop annoying me.

Same here - I updated, but removing the exclusion had the warning popup back in seconds.

MB version 3.2.2.2029, pkg version 1.0.212, update pkg version 1.0.3305

Edit: Restarting had no effect.

Edit 2: Appears to have worked the second time. Thanks Zynthesist!
