Cant access using windows 10 unless I use a VPN

Cant access using windows 10 unless I use a VPN

Hello,

 

Windows 10

Chrome browser

 

I can't login using the web unless I use the Tor browser or a VPN on another browser.

 

Without the VPN,  I have tried Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers and each time I attempt to login, I am redirected to the dropbox sign up page. There is no error message. I have attempted to login using a private browser (no extensions) and with virus protection switched off and I still can't login.

 

For some reason I can only login on the web using a VPN.

 

I can access dropbox via my phone (android) without a VPN. When I gain access using my phone I am using wifi. The same connection I use when I can't login on the web. I can also gain access using the Windows app. 

 

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

 

Thanks,

Adam

The culprit was Bitdefender. I could have sworn I turned it off when I tested on a private browser. Seems not.

All's well that ends well.
