No Access to Dropbox

When I try to open the dropbox page from my laptop, I get the error that this site can't be reached. I checked my connection and I can get access through my mobile phone with the same connection. I made multiple restarts. I checked my antivirus settings. Nothing seems to work. I also tried from multiple browsers. I still get the error in all of them! Iam now texting you from my mobile phone. Please help!!!!

Found it! After a long search. There was blocked from the hosts file. I deleted it from there and now I am fine.

Yes.
I have windows so you go to the search bar and cope paste this:

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

You will find
the host file. Select it and open it with the notepad. Then when it's open search all the file (by pressing (ctrl+ F) and typing dropbox). If it exists there, it blocks you from accessing it so delete all links that contain it. I hope I was helpful.
