Can't access Dropbox on laptop. Period

Can't access Dropbox on laptop. Period

I am posting this through my phone.

I use windows 8.1 64 bit. I don't have firewall turned on, I tried accessing the site through chrome, Dropbox refused to connect. Chrome claims the connection is not secure. (Instead of a lock on the address bar it's an i)
I tried using the desktop app, won't let me log in.
I tried another browser, firefox or internet explorer won't work.
I tried booting in safe mode, nothing.
I cleared my cache and all Dropbox cookies, nothing.
I could actually access help.dropbox.com, but that was about it.

I have no clue what's going on, I asked my friend online and they could access the site just fine.
