Problem in Installing Dropbox on Windows 8.1.

I just purchase a Windows 8.1. note book. 500 Giga; I am the only one user and Administrator. I have a dropbox account. I want to replicate it on this machine. I went on my dropbox account. I downloaded dropbox and installed it. I can access the panel. End of the story. I cannot do anything else.

1. panel is frozen saying "connexion ..." and that dropbox is starting (for two days)
2. I can access the preference/options panel, but is also frozen.

I sent a mail to dropbox support to ask two days ago. But also frozen.
Hes someone an idea ?
Thank you !

I have had issues with DropBox and even Google drive apps in the past if Internet Explorers security settings were too high. Give that a shot first.

Have you tried uninstalling it then re-installing it? Also does it work when you access the dropbox folder your drive from file explorer instead of going through the panel?

Gabriel, I removed all the firewalls and made a rule i the active one when back (ESET) to permit Dropbox back and forth.
Takunda, I have installed and uninstalled it three times (however it went a little further the first time).  I do not recall if this was before or after I installed ESET.
The Dropbox directory had not been created. Qhen I cleck on the directory or on the site in the panel nothing happens; I created the dropbox file where it should have been, this has had no impact.
Thank you for the help.

The problem is not solved. I think there are cross difficulties from ESET, M$ and Dropbox. I am sorry for the delay: I got sick. Not of the problem but of a simple flu. My 100 MB mailbox went overloaded.
I will post the solution if I find it.
Thank you Gabriel. You put me on the right track.
