Dropbox is "connecting" forever

Explorer | Level 3

Suddenly my Drobox doesn't get past "connecting" (tried waiting several hours).  I have reinstalled Dropbox - works well on other computers on the same network so don't think it's a network - issue.2018-11-20_15-16-44.jpg

Sorry to hear that, @Bendik_Gill
 
Have you by any chance tried an advanced reinstallation? Maybe that will do the trick. 
 
Let me know how it goes!
