SOURCE: Computer freezes up after loading personal

It seems the acrobat application is creating these problems. Please use the system configuration utility to remove this application from startup.

Click on Start >Run (If you have Windows 7 then type msconfig in search)and then type msconfig. In the msconfig window, under the startup tab, look for any entry which says Adobe and uncheck it. Click on Apply and OK and restart the system. This should do the trick.

Go on to facebook .login and a messege comes up that internet explorer can not work. Facebook aborted.


http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/

Do yourself and your computer a favor. Download and install Firefox, another internet browser. It may take a second to get used to, but you won't have the problems that you have with Internet Explorer.


This should also fix your facebook

Good Luck,

I can log onto facebook but cant get my profile page or messages. This has happened after my pc crashed and everything had to reinstalled. Have I changed some setting? any ideas? Email:...


Make sure you're using the latest version of your web browser. Try turning off any ad blocking or noscripting addons or extensions you may have on. Try using a different browser like Google's Chrome which has good support for modern web pages. This will at least tell you if its a problem with your browser or computer/network. If you're on a school or work network facebook might be blocked.

Facebook won't open. Internet Explorer error pops up &


This is a problem with the computer, more specifically with the browser you are using.

It seems that some addon required for facebook in not correctly working.
You can reset the browser (note: it deletes passwords and history of websites you have visited but favorites will remain there).

Procedure for this is below:
  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Under Reset Internet Explorer Settings, click Reset.
If that does not fix it, run antivirus scan. Let me know for further clarification or further assistance. I will be glad to help.
