How to remove firewall blocking use of computer

Try This:

To get into the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Safe Mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Once you're in safe mode with networking Uninstall your firewall.

Facebook is blocked


I have been blocked my firewalls before as well, and I was able to get through by using the site below

it sets up a fake link that you then save at home, and then you can access the link from behind the firewall. This will not work on all firewalls, so it just depends.


go to
and type in in the adress bar that comes up

when i go on at school, i have to go to wall to wall to post, but i dont think that'll be a problem for you.

GOOD LUCK..............

Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at

I imagine you are behind a corporate or educational institutes firewall with content filtering.

If content filtering is turned on and updated by an internal or 3rd party source, then this would be blocked as well as facebook.

Many content filters will auto block anything with the word proxy in it too.

Adding a program exception

* When you add a program to the exception list, you enable the firewall to open ranges of ports that could change every time the program is run. To add a program exception, follow these steps:
* Use an administrator account to log on.
* Click Start, click Run, type wscui.cpl, and then click OK.
* In Windows Security Center, click Windows Firewall.
* On the Exceptions tab, click Add Program.
* In the list of programs, click the name of the program that you want to add, and then click OK. If the name of your program is not in the list of programs, click Browse to locate the program, and then click OK. Note If you do not know where the program is located, contact the program vendor to determine the program location.

For information about your hardware manufacturer, visit the following Web site: (

I'd try booting windows into safe mode and disabling windows firewall then trying to boot up normally. I've also heard this may be some kind of a virus.

Why does my computer not get into myspace?

Unless you are trying to access MySpace from work or school - and are behind the server's firewall - you *should* be able to get there. If you are using Internet Explorer, try instead using FireFox. Also, MySpace did some upgrades that have caused some issues. I'm sure they'll straighten them out soon enough.

if you are behind a firewall, open the settings and reduce to medium-high, these programs may need to access your computer to establish your i.p address or similar.
