    Have you tried downloading a different browser (Firefox for example, available for free at www.mozilla.com) to see if the problem is a general connection or computer security setting or if it is a problem just with Internet Explorer?

If you are using IE8, you may want to change the Compatibility View settings for that site. If you "are" using IE7, it may be settings on the "Advanced" tab of the Options dialog you need to tweak.

If that doesn't work try a reset of Internet Explorer. If you again go to Tools > Internet Options. Then click the Advanced tab and click the reset button. From there tick the Delete personal settings check box and click reset.
If this doesn't work you may want to start Internet Explorer without any addons. to do this go to start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Addons)

I need to deleat my face book from my mobile not my computer


Open Internet Explorer.


Click "Tools," then select "Internet Options."


Click the "Delete" button under "Browsing History."

This deletes Facebook from your browsing history, so no one can view your history and tell that you've been on the site.


Open the "Security" tab, then click the "Restricted sites" icon.


Click the "Sites" button, then enter "http://www.facebook.com" into the box and click the "Add" button.

This adds Facebook to the list of blacklisted sites in Internet Explorer, which means you'll no longer be able to visit the site.


Click the "Close" button, then click "OK" to save your settings.

You've successfully removed Facebook from your computer.


Google Chrome


Open Google Chrome.


Click the wrench icon near the top-right corner of the screen, then click "Options."


Open the "Under the Hood" tab, then click the "Clear browsing data..." button to erase evidence of the Facebook website on your PC.


Click the "Content settings..." button, then click the "Manage exceptions..." button.


Enter "http://www.facebook.com" into the "Pattern" box, then click the drop-down "Behavior" box and select "Block." Click the "x" at the top of the Chrome tab to close the "Options" tab.


Mozilla Firefox


Open Mozilla Firefox.


Click "Tools," then click "Clear your recent history."


Open the drop-down box, select "Everything" and click "Clear Now."


This removes any history you have of browsing the Facebook site on your PC while using Firefox.


Unfortunately, Firefox does not have the built-in capability to block websites from being displayed or data from being transmitted to and from those websites.


There are third-party add-ons (click "Add-ons" under "Options") that will block websites, or you can do it through the HOSTS file in Windows.


Hope this helps.

First, try to access the web site in a different computer that is connected to a different network. There are times that the site itself has the problem and not the computer.

5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:

1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.

* For Safari:

1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
