Question about Facebook Social Network
When I log onto Facebook I instantly receive an error box that says "Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://www.facebook.com/homepage or http://www.facebook.com/gangsterbattle/targets or http://www.facebook.com/photos and the list goes on an on. Every part of my page that I click on has this pop up error. I have run the virus scan on my computer and there isn't any found threats or viruses. How can I fix this problem? Your assistance would be great on this issue. I really enjoy using facebook and this problem is very annoying. Please help with this.
Hope this helps, Please Rate My Response! Thanks! PREM

Uninstall Adobe Flash player. It's being used as an "add-on" by facebook because you allowed it to at some point in time and it's conflicting with something else causing an error and shutting down IE. If you need the flash player installed on your computer then go to adobe.com and install the new version, but DO NOT allow facebook to install the "add on" for Adobe when requested or you will have to uninstall Adobe Flash again. I know it's annoying to have the script pop up on every facebook page requesting it, but it's better than not being able to gain access to the site.

I went to the internet explorer site and saw that there was explorer 8 and upgraded to that. I then cleared my cookies and now facebook is working again. Thank you Prem. I had previously tried installing firefox and it didn't work. So glad to have found your answer.
