When I try to access facebook.com I keep getting "page cannot be displayed , what is the problem here ?
Facebook uses https as its protocol once you have logged in. If other websites (such as Google, Yahoo, Amazon, etc.) work but websites such as Facebook, online banking, and others do not, then it seems that there is a problem with the security settings of the web browser since it would appear that the problems are only with websites that use secure HTTP (which is what the https protocol provides). Presuming that you are using Internet Explorer (as I have found it to be the most commonly used browser when this problem occurs), what you need to do is reset your security options back to defaults. You accomplish this by going to the Internet Options control panel applet or go to Tools'Internet Options from the pull-down menus within Internet Explorer and then click on the Security tab. You will find four icons at the top of the window for that tab: Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted Sites, and Restricted Sites. Click on each in turn and make sure that each has the Default Level button greyed out. If the Default Level button lights up for one of the options, click on it to reset its settings. After this, click on the Advanced tab and then click on the button toward the bottom that is labelled "Restore Advanced Settings." After this, click OK and close all windows of Internet Explorer that you currently have open. Wait about 30 seconds (to insure that all active Internet Explorer processes close out of memory) and then open Internet Explorer again and try to go to Facebook. If all goes well, you should now be able to get in.
I hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
