    How are you trying to open these sites? Just clicking on the link or entering it into your address bar? Does it happen with more than one browser, eg IE and Firefox?

    Tried firefox into address bar and tried even google but no luck. Click on link doesn't work either.

    You may have to explain your problem in more detail, at least for me to understand anyway.

    TinyURL is possibly being intercepted by AV or a firewall.
    What AV software do you use, do you use ZoneAlarm?

    What happens when you use Internet Explorer? If that also has a problem, then the issue probably lies with a firewall or other security application as already suggested.

    Possibly a given, but those tinyurl addys are case sensitive?, your not just typing them in lower case?
