Tinyurl links won't open

Not able to open Tinyurl links since 2 days. Was working fine until it just quit working. Not able to acess tinyurl.com either. Tried turning off the McAfee Firewall to see if it works. That didn't help either. Please help! All advice/ suggestions are appreciated.

I tried clearing the temporary internet files, cleared the cache - the whole nine yards... but it still does not seem to work. Any other advice?

I was one of those for whom tinyurl was not working, it still was not working yesterday. However, I have now deleted it and re-installed it in my Firefox, so am giving it another try now, as below to see if it is working. I have just chosen an earlier random Thread to try tinyurl.

A quick couple of questions, what browsers are you using? And have you tried to use another one? Just to eliminate a problem with the browser.

Looks like you need to switch back to a old 98se comp as it is still working for me as in the other link using Flock

As as I think I said in other link, it could be something you loaded or the Hosts file, Firewall anything that you are running like Spyware blockers. The list goes on. I have a very simple setup i.e nothing only router Firewall and a AV program

Click on my 'sample' link above, where I just tested my tinyurl, and follow the same instructions as given to lightfeet .... I think this should work for you too.
