It is blocking by your Antivirus.... no issues... when you get the box look at the box carefully... you will be having an option that says "dont show this message again" or something like that.... there will be a check box... you have to give a click on the check box and then give a click on save... hope it will work...

SOURCE: Can not access my facebook page

You are not alone.

Start fresh by pasting this address into your browser address window http://www.facebook.com

I do not know the reason this works but it does. I also do not know why Facebook's own links to itself discontinue to work but it is frustrating.

SOURCE: When I try to open facebook my internet explore shuts down

Sounds like you could indeed have a virus.

Try downloading the following program: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button, Installing it, running a scan, then restarting your computer to see if this helps. Hopefully this will pick up any infections and remove them. Let us know how you get on :)

SOURCE: Facebook won't open in Google Chrome or Internet Explorer

Here you go let me know how it works.... You may want to reset settings in Internet Explorer

Step 1:
In Chrome, click the wrench icon, select "Options" then "Under the hood". Hit the button at the bottom that says "Reset to defaults".

Step 2:
On the same screen, make sure "Use DNS pre-fetching" is un-checked.

Step 3:
On the same screen, scroll down and press the button that says "Change proxy settings".

Step 4:
This assumes you are on broadband (with a pen and paper, write down your current settings so you can back them up if things go wrong). Click on "Lan Settings". Make sure "Automatically Detect Settings" is un-checked. Click "Ok".

Step 5:
Go to the Window XP/Vista Control Panel (Start, Settings, Control Panel). Load up the "Network Connections".

Step 6:
You will now see a list of the network cards and bridges on your computer. Only one of these is used by your computer to connect to the internet. For example, if you are using wireless internet you will only be using the wireless connection. Right click on each other connection and select "disable". You should only have one enabled connection.

Step 7:
Restart your machine. Turn it off and on again. This is a very important step.

Step 8:
Google Chrome will now be working fully. If not, then clear your history and cache and restart the browser.

How to edit your blocked list on Facebook


Have you blocked someone by accident on Facebook, or blocked them on purpose but now want to remove the block? Follow these steps to access your list of blocked people on Facebook:

A. Log in to your account at Facebook.com.

B. Click Account in the upper right corner of the page.

C. From the drop down menu that appears, select Privacy Settings.

D. Scroll down to the bottom, and under Block Lists, click the "Edit your lists" link.

If you have ever blocked anyone on Facebook, you should see their names here under "Block users." Beneath that is the section where your blocked application invites will be displayed, if you have any.

To unblock a user, just find their name on the list and click "Unblock" next to the name. A confirmation box will appear to make sure you want to do that -- click the Confirm button. That person's name will be removed from the block list, and they can now contact you. If you decide you want to block them again, you'll have to wait 2 days in order to add them back onto your blocked list.

If you want to add a user to the blocked list, just type in either their name or email address (in the appropriate box) and click Block This User. If there is more than one person with that name, a list of possible choices will appear with each person's profile picture. Choose the one you want to block and click Block. You won't get a confirmation box here, so if you pick the wrong person, just unblock them and do it again to pick the right one.

I cnt open my facebook account


These are the possible reasons why you can't open your Facebook/ Facebook Account
1. Wrong email and password - Please check if you are using the right combination of your email and password. If you forgot your password, you can reset it by clicking the forgot password below the password box.
2. Blocked sites. If you are navigating from your school, may be the administrator has blocked websites such as Facebook and other social networking sites.
3. Router block. Some wireless routers have features that can block URL using its URL blocking interface.
4. What country are you from? - Facebook must have block access from your country.
5. Your account was hacked. If you're account was hacked/block or disabled for some reason, got to Facebook Help Center. And follow the instructions that suits your needs. I once locked my account because it was hacked. And then followed the instructions sent by Facebook Help. In a week, my account was reinstated. Pay attention to detail and be patient.

How to block someone


Hi there. Whether this is someone you know, or a suggested friend by Facebook, or even a stranger that has contacted you, the way to block them is as follows:-

Find them, by searching for them in the box at the top of your homepage, finding them on your wall posts, or a comment by them on something you've read (i.e. a page you both share). When you get to their homepage / profile, scroll all the way down to the bottom of their page - on the left hand side, the bottom option (in blue) is "report/block this person", click on that and follow the instructions for why.

IF you decide you actually want to "un-block" them, repeat this for anyone, and then "undo" which will let you un-block any and all of your previously blocked people on Facebook.

I want to access facebook but it's blocked on my computer


If facebook is blocked on your computer, then try to use a proxy, to allow access.

NOTE: If the rule is too strong on a computer, there are times that proxies are not working. But try to go to:

http://externalsite.info/ and then type http://www.facebook.com/ on the URL box.

Good luck and have a good day!

Hi I've been having these problems now for a few weeks when I try to access Facebook: internet explorer cannot open the internet site http://www.facebook.com/ same with http://www.facebook.com/home.php


This is likely a cache or cookies problem. To fix it, please follow the instructions below…
On your browser, look to the upper right side where you will see the Tools link.

Click on it and scroll to the bottom where you will see Internet Options. Click on it.

In the middle of the box, you'll see Browsing History. Click the Delete button to start fresh.
